Guest Book

From one of the top Silver (probably 940) Artists of the early 20th century Taxco Mexico Silver revival (and of today in my opinion). This stunning pin | brooch is exquisite in every way. The very large marble like amethyst stone is a lovely purple with white inclusions, one can see into this gemstone (the pictures do not do this justice).

Marks: Made in Mexico. Silver. FD.

Measurements: 89.13mm | 3.50” long, 51.41mm | 2.025” wide, from the back of the pin (not including the closure) to the top of the amethyst gemstone 13.09mm. The amethyst is approx. 24.62mm wide.

Weight: 46.49 Grams.

Circa” Late 1930 - early 1940.

Condition: Excellent vintage condition, of the two curls at the bottom just under the amethyst, the curl to the right has a small ding which is difficult to see,, otherwise no defects the stone is smooth to the touch, clasp works as it should.
