It looks like a simple stylized flower. There's a wave of sterling silver petals around a center slab of black onyx.
But then you notice the size...a big 3 inches across by 2 1/8 inches high. The onyx cabochon alone measures 1 3/8 by 1 inches. And then you feel the weight...a very impressive 44 grams. And then you see it's no ordinary flower pin. It's made with that high-quality silversmithing that Taxco artisans are known for. And then, when you turn it over, you see it's signed JMC, a smith for registered maker TM-43. Also marked MEXICO - 925. The pin has a secure rollover clasp.
It's in excellent vintage condition. Circa 1980s. A fine big Taxco brooch.
