Large round vintage Taxco Mexico Sterling Silver pin or pendant. Signed by listed artist the workmanship on this piece is very high. The modernist design features 4 leaves with prominent stems overlapping each other, centered by a unique 4 ball, four spacers and a spiral on the top that could be part of the leaves stems. The Niello work has faded in some parts but seems to blend in well looking more like tarnish and does as it sometimes does on other pieces that have disturbed Niello work.
