This vintage Peruvian pin / pendant features the favorite and most important animal of the country...the llama.

The pin measures 2 1/4 inches each way. It weighs 10 grams.

The back has a secure rollover clasp. Marked 18K - 925.

Excellent vintage condition.

Now - some llama facts: Peruvian llamas were used as pack animals to transport goods throughout the vast Incan empire.
Llamas are very social creatures and make good pets.
Llamas are big and fluffy.
The llamas of Machu Picchu were so important to the Incan society that hunting them was forbidden.
Llamas were domesticated about 4000 years ago by the Incans.
In Peru, many llamas have their ears pierced and wear decorative tassels that increase the swatting range to include the eyes, which are prone to fly irritation. The tassels also help to prevent insects from entering the ear.
Llamas are cooperative about having their pictures taken with tourists.
Llamas are better dressed than some people we know.
