Midweek Modness: Taxco Abstract Cat Brooch

We’ve talked about Taxco silver before. And we’ve talked about how Scandinavian modernist jewelry before. This kitty kat brooch is both Modernist and Mexican. It’s marked TC- or TH-163, which dates it after 1979. It’s also stamped EM. All of these poincons are impressed over a more elaborate maker’s mark that I can’t quite make out.
