A delightful nosegay brooch in shining sterling silver. Two flowers are accented by a jaunty leaf. The design is sleek with simplified detail, creating a sophisticated, playful effect. The back of this piece marked "Made in Mexico Coro Silver".

This brooch dates from the 1940s, 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. In 1943, during wartime metal shortages in the US, Mexican silversmith Hector Aguilar secured a contract with American Costume Jewelry Maker CORO to design and make handmade silver pieces.

Details.....The brooch measures 3.52" by 1.9". In Very Good Vintage Condition. You should always expect some wear on vintage and antique pieces; we consider it part of the charm.
