set of 2 Mexican Deco silver stone Pins / Brooches ~ Mariachi dancers

on Aug 1, 2020 in Brooches, Mexican and Latin American

Dancing to the sound of an invisible mariachi band this flamboyant, vivacious Mexican Deco couple is a classic brooch design for the period. One can find several versions of it, quite often with turquoise, but most are smaller and not carefully cast. We usually see them separated from each other, still dancing but each one to their own, solo tune. This time, however, I would love them to stay together as they obviously were meant to be. Those whom the … maestro has joined together, let no one put asunder…
