Los Castillo Mexican Deco silver tussie mussie Pin Brooch, cornucopia

on Jul 15, 2018 in archived

Deco Los Castillo sterling silver repousse “tussie mussie” brooch, this is a darling piece, evocative of times when people were more romantic and took the time to show it in the way they dressed. Shaped like a cornucopia, the brooch is open at the top of the horn so that – at least that was the idea – the wearer could put a small flower in it or even a tiny little bouquet. I love these little touches of yesterday’s world, obsolete as what they represent might be…


Size/Weight: 2 3/4″ tall by 2 1/16″ wide; 26.5 grams

Hallmarks / Date: marked with the taller’s early signature in straight line as well as “TAXCO”, “STERLING MEXICO” and des. no 110; 1940s

Condition: excellent vintage with no flaws or repairs noted, great sculpturality in the repoussage, fantastic patina that is enhanced with oxidation and very very romantic
