A very nice silver wire from Peru.  This piece dates to the famous finds of the 1980's, and comes from an old Peruvian collection (actually assembled in Peru.)  The wire is longer (and much thicker) than the contemporary pieces found around 2005-2010, and what I find most appealing is that it doesn't have the rough, frayed appearance that other Uchucchacua silvers tend to have..

Sorry to include my hand in the picture, for whatever reason simply positioning it on the glass made it seem much more two dimensional in the pictures-- as with most wire silvers, this one has a number of turns and bends.
