This geometric openwork pin is distinguished by its design, which is based on Precolumbian ceramic stamps. The pin is sturdily made and has a secure C-clasp. It is stamped on the back Taxco 980, which indicates a higher-than-sterling silver content. It likely dates from the 1940s-50s. The metal exhibits a very strong test for sterling silver. The pin measures a little over 2 ¼ inches long by 1 5/8 inches wide. Weight: 16.5 grams
