Vintage La Cucaracha, Mexico 980 Silver Set - Pin & Earrings
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1950 or so
ITEM: A silver demi-parure from Taxco, Mexico composed of a pin and a pair of screwback earrings. Manufactured by La Cucaracha (a retail shop in Taxco), the set is in the shape of a stylized feather and the earrings are true left and right pieces.
