Vintage 1950s Mexican Casa Maya Serpent Pin or Pendant


The piece is made of hammered copper and brass, and adorned with two toned green enamel, for which the atelier was known, and a jadeite “eye”.  There is both a pin and a loop on the back.  The iconic Casa Maya hallmark stamp is found on the back of the piece.  This piece is found in Sandy Hargrove’s book “Maya Mexico Jewelry; An Informational Guide”.  The piece is in very good vintage condition with a nice patina – we do not polish any of our pieces prior to selling them.

A highly collectible piece, and a great example of unique wearable Mexican art from a creative and skilled workshop that was popular enough to have their own storefront in Mexico City during the 1950s.
