Vintage Taxco Mexican Sterling Silver Orchid Brooch Pin 2 and 1/2" Hallmarked

This fabulous vintage sterling orchid from Mexico is in wonderful vintage condition, with considerable patina. This is a classic Mexican organic design, copied by most all the silversmiths back in the day of masterfully crafted hand-wrought silver jewelry. It is fairly large at 2 and 1/2 inches across any way you turn it for a measurement. It is lightweight and can be worn with a lighter, more delicate fabric. It is hallmarked DS, in circle with Taxco, 925, Mexico, and registration numbers TS-53. This hallmark is referenced on page 218 of Bille Hougart's highly respected book, THE LITTLE BOOK OF MEXICAN SILVER TRADE AND HALLMARKS, 2006 Ed. There is some puddling around the older style pin and clasp, where the very sharp pin extends out a bit past the clasp--watch your fingers not to prick-- which are in perfect working order. This is a wonderful piece and will only appreciate in value over time, a must have classic for your Mexican silver collection.

Please note that I do not polish vintage silver unless you request that I do so at checkout. I will gladly shine it up for you with my polishing cloth--just let me know!

I am always happy to answer questions and combine shipping. Customer satisfaction is my number one priority~guaranteed!
