This smiling figure is an image representing the Chimu, a Pre-Inca Peruvian people who are best known for their distinctive monochromatic pottery and fine metal working of copper, gold, silver, bronze, and tumbaga (copper and gold).

The pin has a primitive naive quality, simply cut out and etched and cut through at the eyes and mouth. Some center parts are raised in relief.

Pin measures 2 inches across by 3 1/2 inches high. Has a simple secure ~C~ clasp on the back.

Pin is unmarked and highly polished. The golden glow looked so good we actually tested it to make sure it wasn't actually gold.

Excellent vintage condition.
