Early 20th Century 900 Silver Salamander Lizard Figural Brooch - Mexico
An adorable little guy with copper eyes. He's an eye catching pin at 3 3/8" by 1 1/2" (8.6cm by 3.8cm). The Mexican Intaglio 900 mark can be barely made out and I have acid tested him with results corresponding the 900 content. This mark was used between the turn of the century and 1920. His clasp is a rudimentary C, so again, the timeline fits.
He's in excellent condition and awaiting his new home:). The older C clasps are not as secure but he is light and the design itself will make him cling to whatever you decide to perch him on. I do suggest tightening the C (easily done with pliers) from time to time.
Thank you so much for stopping by and as always, please feel free to contact me with any questions.
