This is a vintage mother and baby duck (pelican-puffin) pin or brooch with what I believe to be green calcite or serpentine gemstone bellies. This is a very old pin, approximately 1930s, with an old marking of MEXICO/ SILVER prior to the 1940s Mexican silver marking system.
The pin is stunning and in near mint condition with exquisite hand wrought workmanship and fine detailing on the wings, webbed feet and tails. The pin has been tested and is sterling silver. The mother measures 2 1/4 inches wide and the baby is 1 3/16 inch across. They are connected by a sterling silver chain and they both have pins on the back. A great find!
