Los Castillo Mexican silver eagle Pin / Brooch ~ mozaico Azteca

on Aug 5, 2020 in archived

Filled in with the greens and blues of vibrant azur-malachite the sterling silver Los Castillo brooch at hand is not one of the biggest examples in the workshop’s “mozaico Azteca” line yet what it lacks in size, it definitely supplements with intensity of presence. The ferociousness innate in a bird of prey is successfully expressed here and it would dominate the scene but for the musical playfulness of the dangling cascabeles…

 

Size / Weight: just under 1  7/8″ wide by 1  5/8″ tall (including the cascabeles); 13.1 grams

Hallmarks / Date: workshop’s name as well as “HECHO EN MEXICO”; not hallmarked for metal quality yet tested and guaranteed to be sterling silver; pre-1948

Condition: excellent vintage with nice, saturated blues and greens in the inlay that is all there, with no damage and no repairs noted and nice patina

Inv.#15159
