Vintage Mexico Sterling Silver Squirrel Brooch Pin - Pre-Eagle - Early Mexican #c480

Regular price $61.00
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 the 1930s, 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 different angles. 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!

The brooch measures about 2 1/8 inches long, 2 1/2 inches wide and weighs 15.8 grams. It 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.

This charming brooch is a marvelous example of old Mexican handmade silver! It's a perfect gift for the animal lover or fancier of 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. The brooch is in excellent vintage condition and ready to wear!
