Guatemalan Quetzal Bird Vintage Sterling Silver Brooch
You have found a truly lovely silver brooch from Guatemala depicting the National Bird, the Quetzal, who is, by the way, on the Threatened list. This brooch is delicately wrought with exquisite attention to detail. It is marked on the back "Guate" and what looks like "910" although that is not a standard silver mark. I would expect to see 925 or maybe 900. Could be 925 and just that some of the mark is worn away. In any case, it clearly is silver and while we polished away the tarnish, it has that pleasing patina that you find with real silver.
This vintage brooch has a standard hook clasp and is in excellent condition. It measures 2 inches wide by 1 inch tall.
This is a sensational find and would be a worthy addition to your collection!
