Mexican Sterling and Quartz Penguin Pin, c. 1955
Here is an unusual sterling silver Mexican pin in the form of a penguin, with an oval piece of aventurine quartz for the body. The well-cast sterling frame is sturdy, and the prong setting is very secure. The stone shows some wear, with a tiny chip to the very top; it is included, but has no cracks. The pin has a secure original rollover clasp and pin stem; it is marked ‘Silver/Mexico’ on the back of one foot. It measures about 2 1/2 inches long by 1 1/2 inches wide at the wings.
