This is a superb Art Deco style 980 silver bird fur clip by Los Castillo of Taxco, Mexico, circa 1940. 980 silver is even purer than sterling and highly desired for its soft shine and superb patina. Very large and quite magnificent, the fur clip has a hinged, double prong closure on the back. This was made to be worn with furs or heavy jackets/coats and can also be used today on a heavier blouse. If desired, these are easily converted by your jeweler to a regular pin by removing the hinged closures and adding a standard safety clasp mechanism. Truly beautiful and quite stunning when worn, you will be sure to get LOADS of compliments!
history of the Los Castillo workshops and the famous men and women that
have been associated with the name is fascinating. In the beginnings
of the silver industry in Taxco, Los Castillo was very, very
influential as they still are today.The workshop was started by Antonio
Castillo and his brothers in 1939. As a side note, Antonio was married
at one time to Margot van Voorhies Carr also known as Margot de Taxco.
The work produced at Los Castillo is considered to be of the finest
quality, design and craftsmanship. Los Castillo pieces will continue to
be investment pieces for the discerning collector.
