Fabulous large Mexican married metals sangria pitcher with its original stirrer spoon by Los Castillo. Made of copper and silver in the mixed metals technique. This technique was developed by Jorge "Chato" Castillo and this pitcher was probably designed by him. Gorgeous modernist design with two human figures. The design incorporates a scooped element intersected by a straight rosewood handle, very geometric. The long silver stirrer has a wrapped around copper wire section on the upper part of the handle and hour glass design spoon on the bottom. The pitcher is signed: "Los Castillo Taxco" and "Metales Castillo". Also marked "Handwrougth" and with design number 50. The Stirrer is signed "Los Castillo Taxco". Very good vintage condition. Measurements: the pitcher is 13" tall and 7" wide, the spoon is 16 1/2" by 1 5/8". This piece is much better in person than in the photographs because of the difficulties in photographing reflective surfaces.
