The lovely Catrina, Queen of the Cemetery, has come to represent the Day of the Dead as has no other image. Originally created by legendary artist José Guadalupe Posada, she is recognizable almost everywhere.
Hand made in Mexico of Alpaca silver, the stamped and embossed detail is just fabulous in each of these charms. She measures 1-3/8 inch wide by 1-1/8 inch high. She may be facing either left or right.
This lovely piece is made of Alpaca silver (also known as German silver). It is an alloy of copper, nickel and zinc (and contains little or no true silver). This keeps it from tarnishing or rusting, but it might dull over time and need a polishing. Please consider that it may cause a reaction to those who may be sensitive to nickel.
