Wonderful pin and pendant by Los Castillo. Fantastic design that is the mix of different techniques. The parrot or "perico" is made with "Metales Casados, "Onix Negro" and "Mosaico Azteca" (married metals, onyx inlaid and azur-malachite inlaid). Signed "Los Castillo", "Metales Castillo" and eagle 15. This design by Jorge "Chato" Castillo won several awards and is illustrated in page 90 of the book Mexican Silver by Penny Morrill. Very good vintage condition. Measurements: 1 5/8" by 1 1/2".
