This Mexican sterling silver pin is hand-wrought by a Mexican silversmith; it bears a registry mark dating it after 1979. The pin depicts a fat and grumpy beagle. He looks as if he might take a bite out of your leg any minute. The artistry is there; only a few simple engraved lines in the silver were needed to show the dog's unhappy state of mind. This humorous pin measures 2 3/8" X 1 3/4" and weighs .6 oz. It is in excellent original condition. This pin is perfect for anyone who owns a tempermental doggie.
