NOT just another pretty face, this one is a carved Mexican Mayan warrior face mask set into a sterling silver wire work setting.
The green onyx mask has a fantastically ornate openwork silver headdress, complete with dangling dome earrings and a twisting lasso multi-strand collar.
The pin measures 1 3/4 by 2 3/4 inches. This is an early, mid-century pin marked simply STERLING 925 MEXICO. This marking was used pre trademarks.
We've left the pin unpolished so you can decide on the patina you like best. Circa 1950s.
The beauty of these old Taxco face mask pins is that they're like snowflakes...no two exactly alike because of all the hand work involved. And once you discover their uniqueness...well, like the potato chips...you can't just have one.
