These beautiful jiggers were hand-pounded and forged in fire by artisans of Copperlife Atesaias in the small Pueblo Magico Santa Clara del Cobre, Michoacan Mexico. The large jigger has markers for measurement. The small jigger measures 1/2 and 1 ounce.
Copper-making has been a long-standing tradition in the territory of the P'urepecha peoples, who were proficient with metal-smithing prior to the arrival of the Spanish. In the 1500's, Don Vasco Quiroga built a smelter in Santa Clara del Cobre, and the towns artisans have been highly productive since.
