superb Deco Mexican silver Quetzalcoatl Belt Buckle or Brooch set

on Jan 8, 2018 in Mexican and Latin American, Uncategorized

Stupendous Mexican Deco silver belt buckle in the shape of mirrored Quetzalcoatls executed in perfect repoussage and having acquired a glorious patina over the years. The anonymous maestro used silver sheet of good thickness here and the piece feels as substantial as it looks. Combine it with a nice leather belt as it was meant to be used or, you can have the two “serpents” easily turned into impressive brooches! Either way, definitely wearable art…
