From Taxco Mexico, this large and impressive pin/pendant has a strong modernistic presence. The beautiful sleek face or mask is carved in smooth,jet black obsidian with golden striations, and is set in a big bold frame of sterling silver. Definitely an attention getting statement piece for your jewelry wardrobe, but would also make a fabulous objet d'art if displayed in a shadow box. The pin is in nice vintage condition, but has one small chip or flaw in the upper right where the face is set into the sterling frame. It is barely noticeable and does not detract from the beauty of the piece. Bears the mark of the highly collectible maker, Los Ballesteros. Measures 2 ½" x 1 7/8" with a 1" profile, and weighs a hefty 53 grams.
