Fabulous enamel pin by Mexican silversmith Margot de Taxco. This piece is pictured in the book "Mexican Silver, 20th Century" by Morrill and Berk, on page 177. The pin was made in Taxco late 1950's, in the studio of Margot Van Voorhies Carr. The sterling silver piece is covered in enamel in the cloisonne style. The design is made up of mosaic style blocks of color. A pleasing color palette of turquoise, blue, and black. The design is a ribbon tied in a bow. Condition is absolutely perfect. No imperfections, just light from the camera flash. Fully marked on the back, Sterling, Taxco Mexico, Eagle 16, Margot de Taxco. Has a locking clasp so you can wear it with confidence. This is a good size pin, 2.5 inches by 1.5 inches. I did not polish, as I like to leave antiques as they are. If you collect vintage Mexican jewelry, this is a very interesting piece. The silversmiths and enamel artists at Margot's studio were the most skilled.
