This wonderful Vintage Mexican Silver Spiral Sun pin / brooch / pendant is signed CII respected but not among the top designers. All of the pieces I have seen from CII are well made, good heft, command good stable prices and are collected. A very nice example of engraving; on this Spiral Sun pin/ brooch the background is engraved.
Marked: CII MEXICO .925
Measures approx. 51mm (2”) round. The piece is very slightly concave.
Weight is approx. 27.65 grams.
Condition: excellent vintage condition, the only flaw is a scratch on the back as seen in the photograph.
The marker CII, although a bit of a mystery is collectible as the quality of the work warrants.
