Vintage Sterling Silver Taxco Bird in Flight Brooch
A Flight of Fancy to be sure and a decorative dream, this sterling silver bird pin from Taxco, Mexico is both colorful and captivating. Fashioned into the shaped of a long-billed bird on the wing, it is crafted of sterling silver and hand enameled in primary colors of red, yellow, blue, orange and green. The brooch is nicely sized at 3” in length and 1 7/8” in width and has a nice weight for its size. A roll clasp on the back will keep it in place and its mark of “925, Mexico, TA-180” provides proof of both its quality and origins. Would be sooo stunning on a Summer frock of white or provide a comely contrast against darker Winter wools. Nicer in person than in the pics, you are sure to be pleased.
