Fred Davis silver and carved amethyst pin brooch

This is an early handcrafted pin. Fred Davis was a very influential figure in the cultural revival of Mexican heritage. The large leaf is reminiscent of Vidauratta's work, and he did in fact collaborate with Davis.

This pin is an exceptional piece of early 20th century Mexican jewelry.
