Vintage Sterling Silver Man in Sombrero and Sandals Brooch - Mexico - Signed SAUL
I love this little pin and the details of his sandalled feet. I've seen a few of these and some have more detail than others. This design in this pin, is intricate from toes to hat! He is marked SAUL and 925 with a very worn eagle mark under the end of the clasp that I'm unable to make out. According to Bille Hougart's Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks (ebook edition, page 139), the SAUL mark was attributed to eagle mark 19.
The Mexican Eagle marking system dated from 1948 to 1979, when it was replaced by the alpha numeric system.
Pin measures 1 1/8" tall by 5/8" (28mm by 16mm) wide (at widest point).
1950's / 1960's
