Originally priced $79
......................................................................
This lovely piece features turquoise set in sterling silver in a Mexican tribal pattern that is reminiscent of the Aztec, Mayan, or Incan tribal art. The stones have quite a bit of wear to them and the pin is in fully working condition on the back. This brooch can double as a pendant as there is a hook to string it onto a necklace on the back as well.

SIZE.
2" in diameter

MARKINGS.
This piece is marked Taxco Mexico JPC and an Eagle with a 3 in the middle. The Eagle identifies that this is sterling silver, the 3 on the inside just reiterates that the piece is from Taxco, Mexico. The designers initials, JPC, are a mystery mark to me thus far. I've dug around in books and online, to no avail. We can, however, help date this piece by the eagle that is stamped on the back. The eagle was used from the 1940s to 1979, so we can be SURE that this piece was made in that time frame. This pieces markings are a bit worn, and the front of the brooch is as well. It looks fine, just either very old, or was worn a lot. From what I can see of the eagle, it is an older eagle that was used circa 1955.


Happy Browsing!! =)
