Vintage 1940s Hector Aguilar silver repousse floral brooch in what I believe to be a squash blossom design which might even have been created by Valentin Vidaurreta. There are several variations of the motif that can be found in various sizes and weights - during the short period in the 1940s when Coro had their jewelry made in Aguilar's workshop due to the war restrictions, brooches like this albeit lighter were also made for the American market and stamped with Coro's Mexican hallmark...

A very rare and special vintage Mexican silver brooch * pin. Mexico City, ca. 19230s. A monumentally scaled piece, this vintage sterling brooch has been created in Repousse in a very nearly painterly style. Expert smithing creates volume and a three dimensional presence as much through shadowing as through shaping of the silver...

Circa mid-century, this clamper was hand-wrought by Los Castillo, and it is spectacular. Wide, large, heavy, and collector quality. The snail shell design has graduated beading which curves gently around the sides. Very substantial, with a weight of 104.4 grams. Hinge looks to be old and original, and it's super tight and snappy. Couldn't be more perfect. Recesses are oxidized, giving depth which makes this a standout piece. Fully closed this will fit up to a 6 1/2" wrist...

We love this pin! The colors are so pretty, and the leafy design is so very Arts & Crafts. It consists of a leaf and berry motif, highlighted by a central cushion-cut cabochon blue chalcedony (thought to bring good luck), with a circular green aventurine cabochon on either side. Measuring 1-1/4” x 3/8", it is unmarked but tests as silver...

A very fine, super rare vintage Mexican silver repousse brooch. Mexico City, ca. 1930s. This lovely piece features Repousse silversmith work so finely drawn that the long feathered plumes of this treasured bird’s tail would seem to nearly shimmer and gently blow with the imagined winds as it perches on its sterling tree limbs. Heroic in scale measuring 4v1/2” long and 2 1/2”wide (at the longest and widest points.) marked with a favorite early hallmark ~ and one that often brings me around...

Operated by the Jacopo brothers, Arte en Plata was a silver store based in Mexico City through which several independent maestros sold their work. There are a few specific designs that I have come to associate with the name over my years of dealing in vintage Mexican jewelry but even though they are characterized by a modernist flair, I had never encountered such a minimalist example as this owl pendant before. Modernism, mixed metals and azur-malachite inlay combine here to create the bird's fa...

One of the Mexico City maestros active in the first decades of Mexico's 20th c. Silver Renaissance, Abraham Tobias was a contemporary of Matilde Poulat's and he created jewelry in the so-called Mexico City style repousse. Many of his pieces are based on Matl originals and admittedly the boldness and quality of his repoussage is very very close to, if not often en par with, Matilde's own. Tobias excelled in the crafting of cuff bracelets as well - one can find them in various widths, usually boas...
