Lg. 1950's Castillo Mixed Metals Parrot Pin / Pendant
A splendid (and solid) 1950’s mixed metal Parrot pin ‘n pendant combo from Castillo of Taxco Mexico. Gorgeously rendered in green turquoise, onyx, brass, copper and sterling silver the brooch is a surprising 1 5/8” squared and is thick and heavy for its size. The back has both a loop for use as a pendant and a roll clasp for when wearing as a pin is paramount. It is marked “Metales Castillo, 63, Hencho En Mexico” on the back and is in wonderful vintage condition. Not often seen this large or this fine, prepare to fall in love the moment it’s unwrapped ….
