The works of the famous Mexican jewelry designer and silversmith Salvador Teran are rare and highly collectible. For example, this marked brooch from the master’s only bijouterie collection, released in the middle of the last century by order of the most fashionable at that time Marbel department store in Mexico City.
Born at Taxco, Salvador Teran (1920 – 1974) received his early training at William Spratling’s Taller de Las Delicias. However, in 1939 he and his cousins ​​left Spratling to establish his company Los Castillo. Salvador was responsible for many projects, although often worked anonymously, without labeling his work. Having worked for the company for thirteen years, in 1952, Salvador decided to leave for Mexico City to establish a new company.
Having hired twenty-five designers, he began his career as a lead designer, inspired by pre-Columbian motifs. However, the modernist interpretations of Salvador were so talented and unique that his products, superior in design and craftsmanship, became very popular among jewelry connoisseurs. Accordingly, the Mexican designer himself received immediate public recognition.
