Mexican clay head jewelry was popular with American tourists during the 1930s to 1960s. They traveled to Mexico and wanted to bring home a piece of that unique ancient culture.

This necklace was made by and signed...COBRE - HECHO EN MEXICO. The pendant features the clay head of a Mayan warrior. These miniature tribal heads hark back to Mesoamerican practices of pottery and mask making. Some of these heads were found in Mexican archaeological digs and were used in making jewelry. Though they seem to look alike, each one was handmade and therefore unique.

This face is enhanced with an etched copper headpiece. Ornate brass wire work is overlaid on the copper metal and the sides and bottom are also scrolled with brass wire. The pendant measures 2 1/2 by 3 inches (without the bail). It hangs from a handwrought chain of copper and brass links.

The chain measures 24 inches around. The necklace weighs 72.7 grams.

Excellent vintage condition. Circa 1950s. A beautiful handmade work of Mexican folk art jewelry.
