This spectacular hallmarked Taxco sterling brooch is inlaid with composite stones of greens, blues and small white flecks and possibly turquoise, lapis, malachite.

This brooch of an Aztec or Mayan face with headdress has fine craftsmanship to the silver detailed outline plus the size is impressive measuring 2 3/4 by 1 3/4 inches.

Mark: Taxco AM 925 Sterling and what looks like GRO-15

There are a few issues that need to be considered.
First of all the closure does not work, the roll over part is stuck and will not turn. Also the backside has the original patina with the exception of a shiny and sticky area from a price sticker at one time. All this should polish nicely, but leaving that up to the new owner.

And need to point out that as you can see, there is a noticeable white spot towards the top of the headdress and I checked with a loupe to try and discern whether it was a flake off, but it appears to not be but part of the stone mix and made that way.
