MARICELA Sterling 950 Cyclone Pin
TAXCO, MEXICO. 1930s - 1940s
seaside*collectibles is please to bring you this unique Sterling 950 pin which was manufactured by MARICELA.
Designed and produced in TAXCO, Mexico and later known as TASCO, this piece is remarkable and uncommon.
This was one of the earlier designs - in the later years pieces were produced less sterling content and were less weighty.
Later pieces proved to be designed in a less primitive style and produced more for the commercial markets (i.e. flowers).
A piece like this not often available and highly collectible.
The 2 arms are deeply etched and have hand applied dots of sterling at each curving segment.
The decorative arms branch out in a circular motion and in the middle of the piece is a blue iridescent glass stone. It is simply a lovely piece.
DESIGNER: Isidro Garcia Pina. Most of Maricela's work was executed in 950 silver.
Pina apprenticed with Damaso Gallegos, another well known Taxco artisan. Pina's company, MARICELA, was named after his daughter.
The piece measures WIDTH: 2 1/3 " x HEIGHT: 1 7/8 ". Weight: 20 grams
CONDITION: EXELLENT. The heavy pinback has a slight bend in it. No other known flaws or defects.
HALLMARK reads: MARICELA. TAXCO 950
