This antique, silver crown was hand crafted to be worn by a processional santo or saint statue. It was designed with a crosshatch band between two beaded borders, and is topped with a sunburst radiating from that band. It is lovely example of colonial folk art, and a nice addition to a silver collection, or to crown a special santo.
