0.925 Sterling Silver Quezalcoatl cups by Juan Carlos Rodarte. I've put up several sets of cups for sale in the last few weeks. This is the last to be listed - and they're absolutely stunning. 925 sterling silver cups: below the shoulder bead these have been engraved with the figure of the Aztec god Quezalcoatl; above the should bead they are hand-hammered in a traditional Mexican finish called Martelinado, which gives a beautiful effect as they catch the light.Each cup weighs approximately 6oz and is hallmarked in the base. The cups are contained in a velvet drawstring bag, and come with two sets of manipulation balls - one white set and one red set. The cups and balls are housed in a gorgeous velvet-lined and hand-painted wooden'Olinola' chest, made in a small town in the state of Guerrero in Mexico. Olinola' means'Land of earthquakes' and the tradition of painting in this style dates back to the 17th century. The cups come with certificate of authenticity.
Only 100 sets of these were planned and I have never seen another set come up for sale since they were first marketed. These cups will j ust take a baseball as a final load, though a tennis ball-sized load fits more comfortably.Thanks for looking - p lease check out my other items for sale.
