This vintage mola measures 16" x 11.5".
Every year when I go to the Panama Canal Society Reunion senior citizens who are down sizing come up to me and ask if I want to buy their mola collections. They know I sell from our websites so they figure I am a good target. I figure their molas are vintage so I buy them. This is one of those treasures.
It is soft to the touch and the colors are vibrant. That tells me it spent its life in a closet.
This is a special mola. The gorgeous 25 you see has a significant meaning. In 1925 a group of Mainlanders went to the San Blas Islands to teach the Kunas how to dress and behave. Bad idea. They were lucky to get off the Islands with their lives. The result was the Kunas came away with recognized laws that assured them of their freedom. 25 shows up in many molas and that is what it is all about.
Now here's the good news. I have a mate. 21082019L
The photos will tell the rest of the story.
All molas are sold used whether they are or not.
Every mola is a one-of-a-kind treasure.
