This is a vintage 900 silver Peruvian brooch depicting an Aztec god or goddess. I think the figure depicted may represent Coatlicue - the Aztec goddess who gave birth to the moon, stars, also known as 'snake woman' and patron of women who die in childbirth. The brooch is square and slightly arched. It is marked on the back with 900 for silver content and a small impressed figure of a llama. The front face of the brooch has a geometric border pattern around the god figure. The figure of the god is facing frontally and holding what looks like a snake in each hand. The brooch has a standard pin stem and simple C clasp.

This brooch weighs 15.5 gr. It measures 1.5" x 1.375".

Condition is good.

This is a fine example of native Peruvian silver work.
