This pretty vintage 1 and 3/8 inch across brooch pin pendant is thin and lightweight, with shimmering, natural abalone inlay in a floral, quasi pinwheel design. The hallmark on the back is so worn it is very difficult to make it out, perhaps LBS in the center of a circle that says Made in or Hecho en Mexico, and there is an eagle assay but it is unclear also. The pin and clasp work perfectly and there is a fixed bale for use as a pendant. There is some very heavy patina in the crevices, evidence of a cleaning before I acquired it. Very pretty abalone striations with mostly seafoam green, teal blue, and violet shading, depending on how the light strikes. The abalone is smooth and intact, all in excellent condition. A lovely old Mexico hancrafted piece!
Please note that I do not polish vintage silver unless you request that I do so at checkout. I'll be glad to shine it up with my polishing cloth, just let me know!
