This lovely Sterling figural fish brooch has colorful Yellow and Red striped basse-taille enamel on the body with a wave of Turquoise Blue enamel reaching upwards from the center. There is also a flourish of Blue around the eye. I love the way mouth is open and appears to be swimming. This was made by Castelan and the enamel work is reminiscent of Margot de Taxco. This is marked Castelan in script, O925 MEX, STERLING and the Eagle mark is 15 which is registered to Castelan and a few others. There is a roll over safety catch.
SIZE & CONDITION: This is 1 7/8" high by 1 1/2" wide and is in Very Good condition. The enamel is intact, colorful and glossy. There are some surface scratches in the silver and some small dark areas.
PLEASE NOTE: I ship on Wednesday and Saturday.
