Colonial Tupu, (Ca 1550-1824) fabricated with ornately designed spoons and an unknown stone. Six inches long and 1.3 inches wide. The Silver Tupu (metal ornamental shawl pin) of South America appears to have originated with the ancient cultures. As the art and techniques of metallurgy became more refined the Tupu became more detailed. The metal Tupu was preceeded by the use of bone.
