Free form natural volcanic micro crystalline sterling flower brooch. We have had Edwardian pieces similar to this in the past, but this pin has different crystal blooms, and is the first one we could track because of its mark 980. This places its dating between 1933 to 1940. It is Mexican made silver which is no doubt a copy of Spratling's work. He used natural, native material, like volcanic glass in his creations. Because of the talent of the local tradesmen, which initially drew Spratling to Mexico in 1910, he often said his work remained 'exclusive' for all of three weeks before being copied by local artists. This pin is a wonderful example of early Mexican work before it began to be exported over the border. It measures just over 2 inches across, and the 'florets' of volcanic crystalline have a peachy-pink tint with a hint of lavender which comes from the reflection of the back silver.

Box is display only.
