Other than a couple of examples of his hallmarks, very little is known about M. Velazquez but we here at the store have fallen in love with its exquisite repousse, the bold designs and the exceptional craftsmanship and execution.
Dating in the early decades of Mexico's 20th century, Velazquez's jewelry is very reminiscent of Matilde Poulat's style and the techniques that she employed. It remains to further research to show whether there was any connection between the grande maestra and our designer here - until then, we have the beauty of his work to admire.
We have today a wonderful floral pin from this artist.
This pin measures 2 - 1/16" in height and is 1.75" in width. The central design is a swirling wind design around a flower.
The pin is signed on the back and was manufactured in Mexico.
A lovely old world piece of jewelry that will delight any fan of Mexican metalsmithing.
