Pre 1900 Bolivian Sahumador or Incense Burner - Catholic Church

We have been advised that this old INCENSE BURNER is from La Paz and is from the Republican Era of 1820-1900. Our Jeweller as advised us that the metal has a content of silver mixed with other metals....probably an Alpacca Silver base mix with added Silver. The design is an interesting mix of the old Inca religion melded to that of the Roman Catholic Church. The Sahumador is about 10" high with an diameter across the burner of 4 1/2".
