This fine, museum quality piece is a marvelous interpretation of the mythic supremely important QUETZALCOATL * feathered sergeant god * created in very fine repousse (and backed) by the father of the Mexican Silver Renaissance William Spratling, Taxco, ca. 1930s-40s. This amazing piece measures a full 3 1/2" across and an equally substantial 2" (north/south). It is a piece of such merit and import that the design has been featured on the cover of the Mexican silver publications and in the museum exhibit of same. Fully and correctly hallmarked. In fine vintage condition with wear apparent only, as expected, to the bar pin. Brought to market out of an important collection of vintage Mexican silver. Exceptional in every way.
