This vintage, sterling silver brooch was made by Miguel Garcia Martinez, the primary silversmith designer at Rancho Alegre.
It is signed Hnos.G.S., which was a hallmark that was commonly used by Miguel Garcia Martinez. This information can be found on p. 114 in Bille Hougart's 'Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks.'
This large Taxco pin depicts a stylized flower with blue turquoise inlay. It measures 2.75" high and 2 3/8" wide and weighs 13.8 grams.
It is signed on the back STERLING 925 HECHO EN MEXICO HNOS.G.S. The Eagle 3 stamp is also present, although partially visible.
Circa 1950-70s, this vintage brooch is in good condition with a working safety clasp on the back. There is light age-related tarnish, mostly on the back.
There is a small crack in the turquoise that is not easily visible due to the 'spiderwebbing' of the turquoise.
It is a lovely brooch for wear or collection.
