Sold, thank you.
|Elegant sterling mid-century candy dish from R.J., a Mexico City maker of ornate silver hollowware listed in Billie Hougart’s “Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks.” The piece is marked R.J., hecho en Mexico, with Sterling (partially rubbed off). The script is similar to that used by Enrique Ledesma in the 1950s, its likely production era. ••• Resting on curved feet, the piece has a pleasing, slightly undulant form and measures 8¼” long and 5¾” wide at the widest points. It stands 2 3/8” tall. Total weight: 299 grams (more than 10 ounces). ••• CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition, with light surface scratches consistent with age.|
