A Mexican Mid Century brooch in the shape of an exquisitely clean-lined and elegant leaf. The sterling leaf curls gently with a twisted stem. Dark oxidization highlights the leaf's midrib. The back of this piece is marked "Sterling", "Taxco", signed "LBS", and stamped with the Mexican eagle mark indicating sterling silver.

This brooch dates from the 1950s, a high point in silver jewelry design in Mexico. The main attraction for the designers and studio jewelers was the locally mined supply of materials. Silver and semi precious gems were abundant and affordable.

Details.....The brooch measures 2.95" by 1". In Very Good Vintage Condition. You should always expect some wear on vintage and antique pieces; we consider it part of the charm.
