This piece is dating from the Era when the great designers such as William Spratling were creating their masterpieces in Taxco, Mexico. The brooch features a piece of carved amethyst in the shape of a flower, a design that was used in both Spratling and Fred Davis pieces. This pin is a very early piece that really shows of the craftsman of Mexican craftsmanship using a modern and stylized art done in silver. In the book by P. Morrill and C. Berk Mexican Silver 007 on page 40 the flowers look like those used by William Spratling in the early 1940's.
