Hector Aguilar's Mexico Silver, 1940's Coro division brooch is an over 3 inch flower with a large beautiful stepped red glass stone in excellent vintage condition.
This huge flower brooch measures just over 3 inches tall at 3 1/16 inches and 3 inches wide by 3/4 inches proud with a very shiny pink vermeil ( pink gold washed or gold over silver) finish. The beautiful open back original stepped glass stone measures 25 mm by 18 mm. The back of the brooch is signed, Coro Made in Mexico and Silver, the Taller Barda / Mr. Aguilar's mark for the team / studio of Craftsman in Taxco, Mexico; in a circular stamping specifically creating Coro pieces. The pin back is slightly wavy; it is sharp and also functions properly having a typical locking 'C' clasp. There is light desirable age appropriate wear, nothing in our opinion that detracts from its stunning appeal, verifying its age and authenticity. A timeless addition to your accessories wardrobe to make a striking statement with lasting appeal, the perfect accessory for so many occasions, seasons, events and ensembles.
Coro Made in Mexico Silver was produced from 1943 - 1950 ( the World War II era ), designed by the famous Hector Aguilar Taxco, Mexico and was produced by his studio of silversmiths; in the late 1940's. This group of artisans were known as Taller Barda, in Taxco, Mexico. During the World War II era sterling silver was rationed for jewelry making in the United States and the demand for quality silver jewelry exceed the supply; many manufactures, including Coro, sought high quality sources to produce lines they could offer fashion conscious customers within the U.S.A. These Mexican Silver Coro high quality pieces are scarce in the market place today and are all highly collectible. (K4521)
