A grotesque mask dangles from this silver key ring, suspended by a short piece of sturdy cable chain. The mask and chain are likely Mexican, evoking a grimacing face with bared teeth and hanging tongue similar to various masks of the ancient Americas. It is constructed of several elements, such as a headpiece, tongue and overhanging lip, soldered onto the the flat face; eyes and nose are incised. The key ring displays some wear commensurate with use as well as indecipherable markings. It is secure and usable. The mask and chain portion are not marked. All of the pieces test for sterling silver. The mask measures 1 3/8 in. long by 1 in. wide; the entire piece measures approximately 3 ½ in. long. Weight: 16.6 g
