Sterling Silver Etched Mexican Quetzal Bird Pin Brooch
$22.00 Hand Made in Mexico, this silver Quetzal bird pin has fantastically detailed etching. The Resplendent Quetzal bird, is found from Southern Mexico to Panama and is the national bird of Guatemala. I have seen these pins with Guatemalan silver markings but the 925 silver marking on this piece, is that of Mexico from 1900 - 1920. The Quetzal was an important part of Aztec mythology. The name literally meaning tail feather, the long plumage of the bird was used in royal headdresses. This hand made pin brooch measures a large size 2-5/8" long by 7/8" wide. It is very lightweight with a 3-D style wing and in excellent previously owned condition.
