Dancing to the sound of an invisible mariachi band this flamboyant, vivacious Mexican Deco couple is a classic brooch design for the period. One can find several versions of it, quite often with turquoise, but most are smaller and not carefully cast. We usually see them separated from each other, still dancing but each one to their own, solo tune. This time, however, I would love them to stay together as they obviously were meant to be. Those whom the ... maestro has joined together, let no one put asunder... Measuring 2 5/8" tall by 1 7/8" wide (for the female figure) and 3" tall by 1 3/4" wide (for the male dancer) the brooches weigh 49.6 grams (for the set) and are both marked "SILVER MEXICO". They date in the pre-1948 period and are in excellent vintage condition with great patina, good definition in the casting and wonderfully green cabs (some kind of agate or even chrysoprase, maybe?), with no damage yet with replaced pins on the back as you can see.
