Regular price $44.50

    Beautiful, Large, Highly Detailed, Vintage Handcrafted and Signed Taxco, Mexican Sterling Silver and Brass Dimensional Wirework Butterfly or Moth Brooch.

   The brooch measures approximately 2 and 3/8 inches
wide, by about 2 inches high, and roughly about 1 and 1/8 inches deep, not including the pinback. (Included you'll find a US Quarter in the photographs, for the measurement-challenged and ruler-averse.) Double c-clasp hinged pinback. Stamped in three areas on the back, "925", "Mexico", and signed, "TG-139". Weight is approximately 20.79 grams, which includes the brass portion, of course.

  This brooch is in very good vintage condition, though it will have the expected light surface scratches and possibly tiny dings to the silver from age and normal wear. I saw no dents, creases or bends. Hand polished this, but it may need further attention if you wish it to be entirely clean, as the brooch was completely black to start and there are many hard to reach areas. The double c-clasp pin back works well enough, but is a bit bent and may need reshaping. The pin is still sharp and pretty straight. This is a handcrafted item which will not be perfectly symmetrical nor machine-perfect in any other sense.

   A very impressive, delicately and carefully crafted vintage Mexican Sterling silver butterfly brooch. Ornate and sparkling, with wonderful attention to detail and lifelike depth.
