We are so pleased to present this lovely Vintage Silver Punch Ladle with Dragon Handle made of Peruvian Alpaca Silver. Alpaca style silver was made in several locations around the world. The most commonly found nation is, Peru. With the pattern on the handle my professional guess is that Peru is where this piece was made. Alpaca Silver- is a blend of 3 metals, nickel, zinc, and copper. The piece is then coated with sterling silver. This combination of metals makes the piece stronger than "normal" 925 sterling silver. It holds its white silver luster as well as Sterling, and cleans just as easily in fact it polishes beautifully .
DIMENSIONS: The total length is 10 1/2" long the bowl is 3 3/4" X 2 3/4"
CONDITION: I have polished this piece and it is just lovely with no damage of any sort noted. ready to unwrap, wear and enjoy. Gift worthy
