Vintage Sterling Silver Stork/Heron Brooch, Turquoise Eye, Mexico, 1940-1950's, 21.09 Gr.
This is a true vintage Mexican Sterling Silver Brooch from the 1950-1950's. It is a 3.25" tall bird - a stork or a heron - that is 2.25" wide and has a turquoise snake eye as the eye, bezel-set. It is signed Silver Mexico on the back tip of the longer wing. Nice detail with ridges in the wings and little dot accents. It does have some typical and expected vintage wear and patina but could be cleaned if desired but given it's age, I do not clean pieces as many collectors want the piece as as. The weight is 21.09 grams. The pin back is built into the pin and an older style locking mechanism. This came from a PA estate sale. Good condition. See photos. Lot. Loc. Win.1.2816.1X1 - LD 2/1/17.

I do not store fine jewelry and for questions on fine jewelry please allow some time for a response. I respond quickly but sometimes I cannot answer immediately and need a few hours until the answer can be provided.
I will combine shipping across all venues. If you pay shipping ahead, I will refund the overage.
Photos are magnified so things will appear larger than they are and they are likely in better condition than the photos depict due to the magnification.
Thank you for stopping by.
Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
