Vintage Mexico Sterling Silver Squirrel Brooch Pin, Large, 3D, Pre-Eagle, Very Early Mexican, C Clasp, Figural, Enchanting! #c480c
DESCRIPTION: This beautiful sterling silver brooch is a very early Mexican, pre-eagle piece. With it's riveted hinge construction and clasp style, I am dating it to circa 1930's, although it could be much older. The brooch is very large, is finished in a smooth silver and depicts the figure of an adorable bushy-tailed squirrel. The squirrel's body has etched details and it's three-dimensional, which adds visual interest to the brooch when viewed from any angle. The brooch has a hollow construction, but it's very substantial and of good weight. The back of the brooch is flat and it closes with an old-style C clasp closure. It's such a marvelous piece!

MARKS: The brooch is marked "Made in Mexico" on the back. It is not hallmarked but it tested as sterling silver on a Tri Electronics gold and silver tester.

SIZE: This generously sized brooch measures about 2 1/8 inches long and 2 1/2 inches wide.

WEIGHT: 15.8 Grams

CONDITION: Excellent, pre-owned, vintage condition. Normal surface scratches from previous use/wear/storage and possibly some mild tarnish.

USES: This charming brooch is a marvelous example of old Mexican handmade silver! It's a perfect gift for the animal lover of fancier or squirrels. It's a big and bold brooch that looks quite striking worn on a suit jacket. It's an impressive piece that would make a fine addition to a Mexican silver jewelry collection.
