An endearing vintage Mexican signed sterling pin by Jeronimo Fuentes*.
The figural pin depicts a Mexican man leaning against a large cactus and napping under his large sombrero.
The pin is beautifully enameled in shades of green, blue and yellow.
The engraved sterling surface shows through the translucent enamel.
The pin is hallmarked JF sterling, hecho in Mexico and has the old bell stamp #3.
The pin is in excellent condition, no damage or wear, safety clasp is secure.
Measures 1&3/8" by 1&5/8", total weight is 5.2 grams.
A great example of Mexican sterling & enamel with a whimsical siesta theme.
