For sale here is a BIG vintage 1950s 60s handmade mixed metals copper brass sterling silver black onyx and turquoise Mexican modernist Parrot Head design brooch pin by maestro Tono of Taxco from his early 'piedra negra' (black stone) line of jewelry. A striking modernist interpretation of the classic Mexican parrot design, and executed in mixed metals and gemstones in an incredibly difficult and time-consuming method that is no longer practiced in Taxco. Measures 2-1/4" by 1-5/8" and weighs a substantial 31.4 grams total. Marked at back as shown, "Tono Piedra Negra Hecho en Mexico", design number "T-79", also "Sterling 925 Taxco" in a circle around "AC". Excellent vintage condition with just fine light wear and some tarnish at back 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.
