set of 2 Los Castillo Mexican silver repousse rooster Pins / Brooches

on Oct 31, 2018 in Mexican and Latin American, Pins/brooches

Vintage set of two Los Castillo sterling silver repousse pins / brooches in a figural design that is so … Mexico! I love the detail in the roosters’ plummage and their luscious tails as well as the attitude evident in their expressions. Fun to wear, I got them together and I believe they need to stay with one another…

 

Size/Weight: approx. 1 7/8″ tall by 1 1/2″ wide; 22.4 grams (for the pair)

Hallmarks / Date: both pieces are fully hallmarked with the taller’s early straight capitals signature as well as “TAXCO STERLING”, “MADE IN MEXICO” and des. no 168; 1940s

Condition: excellent vintage with very good workmanship and detail in the repoussage, great patina, a fun design and no damage or repairs noted
