Vintage Mexican Sterling Silver Celluloid Dragonfly Pin

Vintage sterling silver dragonfly pin made in Taxco, Mexico. One set of wings has an overlay of tortoise shell celluloid plastic. If you look closely at the tip of one wing you will see what looks like a chip. It is where someone applied something hot to it to see of it would melt. If not, it would prove that it was real tortoise shell. this may have been done by fish and game as they go to antique shows looking for tortoise shell and ivory. This is plastic as it melted but now it has a flaw. 😕

It measures 1 3.4" long with a wingspan of almost 2 1/2". Has a number 3 eagle stamp. Round Mexican hallmark as well. Pin has locking clasp. Weight: 4.9 grams.

Buying Vintage is Sustainable

Thank you for considering used items. When you reuse, recycle and reinvent old things, you are preventing new ones from being made. When you wear vintage you not only prevent new ones from being made, you are creating a fashion look and style all of your own. You are also helping my small business and my family as well as the families of those who are always scouting out great finds for me. For that, we all THANK YOU! ❤️
