Sculptural M. Velazquez Mexican Deco repousse silver brooch that can also be worn with a strand of beads as shown here, this is an exceptionally well-made piece and bespeaks its maker's mastery over his art. Maestro Velazquez worked in the style associated with Matilde Poulat and his jewelry has been gaining in popularity over the last years as Matl originals become difficult to find and expensive. Adorned with coral and moonstone, the pin / pendant is 2 1/2" tall by 2 1/8" wide and weighs 31.6 grams. It is signed with Velazquez's early signature in raised lettering as well as "MADE IN MEXICO" and "STERLING" and dates in the 1930s-40s period. In excellent vintage condition with fantastic patina, masterful repoussage and gorgeous little stones. (If you are interested in the necklace configuration, please ask for more details!)
