This vintage belt buckle features the Aztec Quetzalcoatl, inlaid with crushed turquoise and enamel into the silvertone buckle frame.

Quetzalcoatl is the feathered serpent flying reptile (much like a dragon), who was a boundary-maker between earth and sky. In Mexican folklore, he was a creator deity having contributed to the creation of Mankind. Definitely NOT your ordinary serpent.

Quetz (as we fondly call him) is expertly inlaid with smooth seams and solidly filled crushed turquoise stones.

The buckle measures 3 1/4 inches across by 2 1/4 inches high. The back has a bar for a belt to be added. The bar opening measures 1 3/4 inches wide. The prong goes into the belt hole. Hallmarks include METTAL??? - TAXCO - MEXICO.

Though this looks like silver, it didn't test for sterling. Some surface scratches. Overall in very good vintage condition. Circa 1960s.
