An enameled Mexican sterling silver brooch in the tradition of Margot de Taxco. The brooch is made of a single piece of thin sterling silver cut in the shape of a basket overflowing with flowers. The basin of the basket is guilloche enameled in clean, white glass. The flowers are enameled in cornflower blue and the leaves - also guilloched - are dark green. The handle of the basket has a twisted appearance due to the artful application of thin, spaced bands of black enamel. The enamel is in perfect condition and the silver has a warm patina. A beautiful piece for collectors of Taxco jewelry. Secures with a pin and safety clasp.

Measurements: 1 1/2" x 1 1/2"
Era: 1940s-1950s
Markings: Sterling Mexico 925, conjoined JF and faded eagle mark. The "JF" mark is often attributed to José Frederico, a master enamelist who did lots of figural jewelry and is whose enamel work is often compared to Margot de Taxco.
