Vintage Mexican Silver Jewelry Sterling Silver Rose Brooch Pin from Taxco with Eagle Mark 3

Vintage Mexican Silver Jewelry Sterling Silver Rose Brooch Pin from Mexico. This delicate rose brooch is a classic example of the beautiful silverwork that came out of Mexico from the 1940s to the 1980s. A number 3 in the center of an eagle is stamped on the leaf’s underside. The eagle hallmark was used by the Mexican government from about 1946 to around 1980 to affirm an item’s sterling silver content (with a minimum of 92.5% silver) and that federal taxes had been paid on the finished item. The number 3 in the center of the eagle represents the location of Taxco, and so was used on jewelry from a large number of shops and silversmiths. Since no other marks are visible on the brooch, it seems like a reasonable assumption that the pin is sterling silver and that it was made in Taxco no earlier than 1948 and no later than around 1980.

The pin measures 1-1/8 inch wide by 3 inches long. This is a used item in good vintage condition, with the overall fine scratches and dents of years of use wear. Its beautiful naturalistic rose design has a lovely age patina.
