Description - This is a beautiful vintage Margot De Taxco sterling silver pin. This wonderful pin is masterfully crafted as with all of Margot jewelry. The design is numbered #5319 and is called "Floral with Amethysts".
The pin is a stylized flower with two purple amethysts. The pin is shown on page 84 in Penny C. Morrtill's book Margot Van Voorhies The Art of Mexican Enamelwork. Although the book says the design number is 5819 it clearly looks to me as 5319. Regardless, there is no doubt it is one of Margot's original pieces.
Size - The pin is 2 5/8" long and 1 1/2" wide. Weight is approximately 18 grams.
Hallmarked - It is fully hallmarked. "Margot de Taxco", "5319", an Eagle 16 assay mark. Also Made in Mexico, Sterling. Condition - Excellent vintage condition - no dents or dings to the silverwork. There are minor surface scratches in the silver consistent with loving wear and age (and actually desirable on vintage pieces).
The pin enclosure on the back works perfectly. The amethysts are a lovely purple color.The item "Lovely Vintage Margot De Taxco Mexican Silver Pin with Amethysts, Book Piece" is in sale since Sunday, September 16, 2018.
