.....the grape......

What a nice pin, circa 1950s, by well known Taxco artisan, Damaso Gallegos, who is featured in the well known book: Mexican Silver. Featuring a large grape leaf and a bunch of grapes, this would be the perfect gift for the wine lover in your life. Sporting a very nice vintage patina, the pin closes with a well working safety clasp. Very, very nice!

Gallegos is featured in Bille Hougart's book on Mexican Silver marks on page 69. Hougart states that Gallegos's taller was called La Amatista and he opened this taller after he worked for Hector Aguilar at Taller Borda. An interesting Taxco connection is that Gallegos was married to Maricela's sister. Gallegos is also featured on pages 154 - 157 in Penny Morrill & Carole Berk's book entitled Mexican Silver who indicate that Gallegos and Spratling shared a strong friendship, partly due to their common interest in Mexican coins and artifacts.
