Large vintage Mexican "Angel Wing" hollow silver brooch. The silversmith has created a silver angel wing design and enclosed the back with flat silver to create the hollow brooch. He continues to decorate by running  two (2) pieces of twisted wire into the grooves between the feathers of the wing. The artist finishes by attaching a pin with safety locking clasp on the back. Most silversmiths will tell you that creating a hollow piece is the hardest because to solder the seal without damaging the piece take very much skill and "trial and error" to get it down pat. The old tobacco canteens are a great example.

The brooch measures 1" wide by 2 7/8" across and weighs 12.2 grams. The silversmith has stamped it 925 sterling silver. Very nice brooch with little to no signs of previous wear.  $54.95
