Their are several hand carved markings - MC for the moreria mark of Miguel Chuc, together with the moreria inventory number, 192. A second set of illegible initials on the opposite side has been defaced.
The tag is inscribed: 'El Moreno. Made by the grandfather of Miguel Chuc. San Miguel Totonicapan.
Dimensions: approximately 8 inches x 5 inches.
Condition: excellent wear and surface patina. Old native repair on interior surface.
