Ding-a-ling. Three little bells add a very festive note to this vintage Mexican sterling silver holly leaf berry pin.
The back is signed FCS PLATA 925 - TLAQUEPAQUE JAL MEXICO. We believe this design originated with Taxco silversmith Damaso Gallegos (1895 - 1976) as we've had the identical pin with his hallmark.
The pin measures 2 inches across by 2 1/2 inches high. The center berries show slight age-related bumps. A secure rollover clasp keeps the pin dangling and dingling in place. It's a merry pin in overall excellent vintage condition.
