Caricaturesque in the most endearing, spirit-lifting way this vintage Mexican silver fish brooch will put a smile on your face no matter rain or shine! Executed in confident repoussage which adds sculpturality and drama to a highly detailed body, it has a cheerful amethyst eye and thick, exaggerated lips. It looks to me as if it's singing down there in the deep - I can almost see tiny air bubbles coming out of its mouth. Measuring 2 3/4" long by 7/8" wide the brooch weighs 12.6 grams. It is signed with maker's initials "LJD" as well as "HECHO EN MEXICO STERLING", "TAXCO 925" and des. no 2034 and dates in the 1940s. It is in excellent vintage condition, carefully crafted and finished, with no damage and no repairs noted - and did I say fun?
