Vintage Mexican Sterling Silver Brooch Amethyst Signed Pin Taxco 1930s-1940s :
VINTAGE MEXICAN STERLING SILVER BROOCH AMETHYST SIGNED PIN TAXCO 1930s-1940s SIGNED VOV
I love this amethyst bow brooch & I know you will too! Handmade sometime before 1948, and signed VOV, it's a fine example of the work of the old period Mexican silversmiths. Classically Mexican in style, it combines the elements of the highest quality silver & silver work, along with a large round amethyst cabachon, which was the most popular stone in the glory days of the Mexican Silver Renaissance, & still to this day. The design reflects the influence of the early masters William Spratling & Hector Aguilar. The absence of the eagle assay & the simple hallmarks of this vintage piece dates it to before 1948. Much of the silver used in the early Renaissance was higher purity than 925 (92.5%), and the shiny gleam hints that it may be 940 silver or higher. An important piece for your Mexican silver collection, or a wonderful gift!
