fun Antonio Pineda Mexican 970 silver figural Pin Brooch

on Aug 10, 2020 in archived

Sometimes things just fall into your lap unexpectedly and this is what happened with the two Antonio Pineda brooches I am listing today. First up a fun (albeit … smelly in real life, if you are not careful) figural brooch glorifying our beloved skunk! At least, I think it’s a skunk and I wish I had a more noble name for the creature. Such an unusual, tongue-in-cheek design for Antonio who is seriously modernist and quite heavy at times. Nice overlay, deep oxidation, almost out of a cartoon yet so beautifully rendered. It’s Antonio after all…

 

Size / Weight: 1 3/4″ wide by 1″ tall; 10.6 grams

Hallmarks / Date: fully hallmarked with Antonio’s crown, “970 SILVER”, “HECHO EN MEXICO”, des. no PR 568 and Eagle 17 assay mark; 1950s-60s

Condition: excellent vintage with a fun, easy to enjoy theme, nice patina, its oxidation in great shape (just some old cleaning liquid residue that can be easily removed under running lukewarm water), with no damage and no repairs noted
