Hello, and welcome to Pleasant Hill Cottage.

For your consideration is a unique pin or brooch from Taxco, Mexico. The back is marked "MEXICO TO-34 DUICE 925." I haven't been able to identify the actual artist's name as few records are known to exist. However, the TO-34 mark was used after 1979.

This hand made piece of jewelry is quite amazing as are many other pieces produced in Mexico. The brooch is very different, simple but appears very modernist in design. The workmanship is excellent, indicating a quality piece of jewelry.

Measurements are approximately 3 1/2" long 1 3/16" high. Although gently used, the brooch is in good condition. The pin bar is straight and the safety clasp works as it should. A little more cleaning and polishing with a soft cloth will really bring out the shine of the silver, but I'll leave that to the new owner.

A new jewelry box for safekeeping is included with all jewelry purchases. Thanks for stopping by.
