Seller: floydt (3,115) 100%, Location: Tucson, Arizona, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 232738476300 VINTAGE LOS CASTILLO TAXCO STERLING SILVER AND ONYX MODERNIST PIN ******** Offered for your consideration is a striking vintage silver and onyx pin from the workshops of the famed Taxco Mexican silversmiths, Los Castillo. It features an interesting-looking skull with fine long horns, in a modernist setting. And, of course, it is beautifully done. The four Castillo brothers all apprenticed at the Taller de las Delicias of William Spratling in Taxco for several years before esablishing their own Los Castillo shop in the late 1930's. What a wonderful beginning for these talented men and their organization. No wonder Los Castillo is so highly regarded! The pin is certainly well marked. Besides ONIX NEGRO, and the LOS CASTILLO TAXCO hallmark in a circle surrounding an eagle (whose number is not clear to me), it even adds HECHO EN MEXICO! It measures just short of 1" by 1 1/4", is 1/8" thick, and weighs 13.9g. But of course we do not think of these vintage works of the silversmith’s art in terms of melt-down. This Los Castillo pin is in really good condition and has a nice patina. The silver on the front is a wee bit scratched from use , and the onyx is a bit cloudy, but it still makes a very striking and unique presentation, and could be polished up if desired. ******** This striking Los Castillo pin would be a welcome addition to your wardrobe. ******** CONDITIONS OF SALE U.S. SHIPPING is FREE and also includes tracking and insurance.
