Vintage Tane Silver & Goldstone Brooch & Pendant
$250.00

This striking brooch designed with a goldstone bezel-set cabochon is truly a piece de resistance in Mexican silver artistry. It can either be worn as a pendant or a brooch, but either way, this exceptional piece took untold hours to make and finish with such fine detail. This magnificent pendant/brooch was fabricated with meticulous detail by remarkably gifted and experienced hands. The detail has very small silver wire wound very tightly to form tiny spirals intercepted by larger "v" shapes. The background for the shapes and the outer circle were cut by hand from one piece of silver sheet. These elements and the bail and clasp were soldered in place to make a spectacular and incomparable piece of jewelry. The hallmark reads, "Hecho en Mexico DF 0.925, RN, Eagle 206". In Billie Hougart's book, The Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks, she shows that "Eagle 206" and script initials, "RJ", is attributed to TANE Orfebres which is a prominent silver house in Mexico City that sold the work of many famous silversmiths under the trade name, "TANE". It was established in 1953 which is about the date I would attribute this phenomenal piece to. The hallmark reads, "Hecho en Mexico DF 0.925, RN, Eagle 206".
