Antonio Pineda Tie Clip

Arrows, arrows, and more arrows point the way on this small but fanciful tie clip by Mexican master Antonio Pineda. Double-ended arrows flank a whiplash "S" curve with arrows on each end, made of heavy overlain 970 silver.

Antonio Pineda (1919-2009) was one of the modernist masters of Mexican silver jewelry. Pineda began his career working for William Spratling and opened his own taller (studio) in 1939. A comprehensive exhibit of his work was shown at the Fowler Museum in Los Angeles and a monograph “Silver Seduction, The Art of Mexican Modernist Antonio Pineda” was produced in conjunction with the exhibit.

SIZE: 1-3/16" long X 5/16" deep

MARKS: tucked beneath the clip mechanism is the maker's mark for Antonio Pineda of "Antonio Taxco" in the shape of a crown; "Hecho en Mexico"; "970"; and the Mexican eagle assay mark.

AGE: mid-20th century. The Mexican eagle assay mark was in use from approximately 1948-1980

CONDITION: very good vintage condition with some scuffing and dings to the silver, consistent with age and use.
