A vintage, rare brooch by Hector Aguilar depicting a stylized Monkey head in 990 silver. Measures 2" tall and 1 1/2" across. Marked on the back with the conjoined HA for Hector Aguilar, Taxco and 990 for the silver content. Has a rollover safety clasp that holds securely. This design comes from the Monkey Calendar Symbol for the Codex Nuttall. Brooch is pictured on page 60 of Penny Morrill's book, "Silver Masters of Mexico." Our brooch is facing to the right. Collector quality, thick sterling. Great find!
