From research into the marks on the base of the gourd (comparing them to other clearer marked examples) we believe the metal decoration to be alpaca silver with gilt accents. The mark should read 'INDARG' 'MF' and 'ALPACA' unfortunately these marks haven't helped us date the gourd. There are no marks on the straw other than 'INDUSTRIA ARGENTINA' so we don't know the date for this or the composition.
The gourd measures approx. 3" in height, 2.75" in diameter and weighs 73g. The straw measures approx. 7.25" in length and weighs 22g.
Both pieces are in excellent used condition, the mark on the base of the gourd is worn and there is shelf wear to the base (see closeups of all photos before purchasing).
