For sale here is a BIG set of vintage 1950s 60s handmade 'metales casados' (married or mixed metals) Mexican modernist Parrot design cufflinks with matching tie bar clip. Entirely handmade striking modernist design patterned after the famous Los Castillo 'perfil de perico' design, but with this set all metal in tri-colors including sterling brass and copper. These married metals pieces were extremely difficult and time-consuming even for a master metalsmith, and this set probably took upwards of a couple days to complete. Since the metalsmith was paid by the piece (completed), and could usually complete several pieces in one day, these married metals pieces were also quite expensive compared to items made from other metalworking techniques. The cufflinks measure 7/8" by 7/8", the tie bar measures 2" long by 7/8" wide, and the set weighs a hefty 27.8 grams total. Marked at back "Sterling 925 Made in Mexico", and I'm guessing it was made by a Los Castillo metalsmith working on his own time for extra money and thus no maker mark. Excellent vintage condition with just fine light wear and tarnish as shown - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
