Vintage Mexican mid-century copy of Hubert Harmon's "sea serpents" cuff bracelet, this is a nice alternative to the original that is very hard to find and hence commands lofty prices. I like to think that Harmon was inspired by Mexican folk art when he created this design as is the case with his famous "mermaid" pieces. And though the cuff at hand is simply marked "MEXICO", I wouldn't be surprised if it was made by Casa Maya since they did not always fully sign their creations...

Here is a really nice micromosaic brooch, possibly from Italy – in the 1800s the Italians were making these pieces for the tourist trade. This one is made of red, blue, and white tesserae, and none of them are missing, which is unusual. The setting is brass, we believe, and the whole thing is 2-5/8” x 7/16". It is signed “FAP” on the back. It’s a bit dirty, and there seems to be a break in the twisted metal decoration around the edge, but it’s barely visible without magnification...
