Mexican Sterling Silver Cut Glass Brooch with Enameling c1950
A stunning mid century brooch crafted of sterling silver and cut glass. This Mexican Silver beauty is large measuring 1 1/2" across with a 1/4" depth. It is Very Good estate condition.
The brooch has several markings on the back. It is marked 925 for sterling silver purity and has been safely tested to be so. Around the "925" is the following Guaj. Mex. for Guadalajara Mexico. The makers mark underneath looks like it could be ARG or ARV or ARC we are not 100% positive. It is also stamped with the Silver Mexican Eagle 3 mark.
The sterling silver setting is bright, clean and highly polished. Minimal patina. The cut glass pattern is gorgeous. The black enameling accents the glass beautifully and this has the look of a Victorian Style brooch.
