I have had a pin out on eBay for a couple weeks .. think I identified it correctly .. thought there might be interest … or someone would make an offer .. but nada. I am getting the feeling it may not be what I offered it as. Not sure I am allowed to link my eBay sale here so will not do that .. but check it out please .. thanks … Zeke
**This 1980's brooch is by the highly collectible, Taxco silversmith known as Two Trees.
**HALLMARKS: MEXICO, TS-79, 925. This Two Trees letter-number, silver registration mark is documented in Bille Hougart's The Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks.
**The interior is stamped “Mexico TS-70 925”. According to the Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks, TS-70 was used by the Two Trees studio of Taxco.
There are NOT two trees on the back of these item anywhere??
Circa post-1980, this is a heavy fabulous bangle bracelet from noted Taxco silversmith Two Trees, whose hallmark is two pine trees.
Now, I understand. He is a relatively new artist but he sometimes does and sometimes does not use the TREES part of the Hallmark!
Well I feel some better, but this was no way recent. We are almost certain in the 1950s when she was there. So maybe the studio has deeper roots! I have no clue. There is some possibility she may have acquired Circa 1960 when she was buying. But no later. This is not anything from 1980 we feel certain. Hey. I have learned a ton. The wee thing isn’t worth more effort. Thank you, thank you, thank you all! Or BOTH I should,say. Zeke.
