Cortes GC Silverplate Information?

Postby Joellea1 » Fri Jul 23, 2021 2:10 pm


I recently came across a beautiful vintage hair clip. The mark on the back is barely legible but after lots of searching I believe it says "Sterling Cortes gc-2 Mexico". However I cannot find any information about this maker! I have found three other pieces with the same mark one of which differs in that it says "silver plated" instead of "sterling". Does anyone have any information on this maker? I would really like to know roughly how old this hair pin is.

The hair clip.

The mark on my clip. As you can see it is difficult to read

This is not my image, I found this on eBay. The one difference is this says "silver plated" whereas mine says "sterling"

Thank you all in advance!
