Anelli souvenir messicani
Che storia che li facevano coi pesos.
Fine Light Trading is a one-man workshop run by Innis Lawrence, who produces brass rings inspired by vintage Mexican souvenir rings from the 1940s-1960s.
Souvenir rings were originally made in Mexico after the Mexican Civil War, and were often cast from melted down coins because the peso had become extremely devalued. They gained popularity with American motorcycle enthusiasts in the 1940s, who would buy the big, tough, affordable rings on their trips to Mexican border towns. Eventually the rings became highly collectible and emblematic of American biker culture.
