3 Abalone Pins Butterfly Dolphin & 925 Silver Flower

Here are 3 figural mosaic pins made with iridescent abalone shell set in silver colored metal.

  • Pinwheel flower is sterling silver stamped in a circle in the metal: Taxco Mexico 925 ARM (artist's initials). It also has a paper label: Mexico Plata (silver) 925 with logo. It also has a loop so it could be worn as a pendant as well as a pin. It has darkened with age. I have not tried to polish it. Very good condition. 1-5/8" diameter.
  • Butterfly is stamped in a circle in the metal in the same way as many of the pieces made in Mexico but the stamp did not hit true so is partly missing and what is there is very light. I cannot read it. The pin measures 1-7/8" wide x 1.5" high. Upper left wing tip has a slight curve in the metal. There are several cracks in the abalone and a couple of areas that are either natural non iridescent rough spots in the shell or missing bits of abalone. We'll get a close up photo so you can see it.
  • Dolphin has areas of abalone and black material. It is stamped Alpaca Mexico. It measures almost 2" wide and 1.5" high. Very good condition.

All were purchased from estate sales over the past 20 years.
