With World War II raging, Americans could no longer use silver for jewelry as it all went toward the war effort. Coro Jewelry Company contracted the famous Mexican silversmith, Hector Aguilar, to make pieces for them from his own designs. From 1943 - 1950, Taller Borda, owned by Aguilar, created hand-made, sterling silver jewelry which carried the 'Coro' name.

This lovely Cattleya orchid brooch is gold vermeil over sterling silver. From the throat of the flower extends three stamens which are set with a faux blue sapphire, emerald and ruby. The orchid blossom measures 3" in width, 2 3/4" in length and has a safety clasp mechanism. Marked in a circle "Made in Mexico - Coro - Silver". Great vintage condition with the usual minor wear on the gold vermeil.
