For sale here is a BIG vintage 1950s handmade mixed metals sterling silver brass black onyx and azurmalachite inlay stylized Eye design brooch pin by Stella Popowski of Taxco, Mexico. Incredible entirely handmade striking design modernist brooch that's a real eye-catcher! Popowski was a jewish emigre (most likely from Poland) who fled from the Nazis in Europe by moving to Cuba in the 1940s, and then to Mexico in the 1950s. She lived and worked in Taxco in the 1950s to early 1960s and designed jewelry for Los Castillo, Antonio Pineda, and later for herself. She was not a silversmith, so she designed the jewelry but had it made by a number of Mexican silversmiths. In the mid-1960s she moved to California where she lived in Newport Beach while concentrating on painting and design projects. This brooch measures 2" long by 1-3/8", and weighs 15.5 grams total. Marked at back as shown with designer mark, "Popowski" also "Sterling" and additional marks for the silversmith as well as the Eagle 23. 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.
