Silver Brooch of Mexican Man

Regular price £37.50 Sale

A Mexican silver brooch in the shape of a man wearing a sombrero and serape.

A lovely, solid item with lots of character, that can even stand on his own two feet!

The markings are not entirely legible, you can make out 925 and DF. I think these were made by various people as souvenirs for tourists.

Fastens with a safety clasp that is in good working order.

There is some verdigris which may clean off, I have left it alone as I think it is up to the buyer what level of patina they wish to retain.

The brooch is 38 mm high and 24 mm wide.

I am not sure of age, I have seen similar items elsewhere dated to the 1940s-50s, but it may also be a later piece.
