Lovely 8 and 3/4 inch mate tea strainer straw in 800 silver that weighs 31 grams. This is a good size and weight for a silver mate tea straw.
It has exceptionally pretty floral embellishment that features real gold details. The flowers have a warm, folk art appeal. It is in excellent condition with no dents or damage.
We are including a gorgeous hand painted Argentina theme bombilla. It has 4 unique scenes of Argentina.
When you hold it and look at each one, you will see it is as well executed as the lovely straw.
There is an Argentinian Coat of Arms with a red cap, a symbol of unity and friendship.
There is a horse, a gaucho (Argentine cowboy) and a beautiful estancia or hacienda.
There is a decorative black border that has scratches
None of the minor imperfections detract from the appearance, beauty and craftsmanship.
The exceptional artistry of both pieces makes this a wonderfully appealing pair.
It would be a phenomenal gift for someone who loves mate, silver and art.
