The scrolling foliage climbs 3.25 in. tall on this hand made beauty. It is also large enough to fit up the arm in comfort. It measures 2.25 at the small end and 2.75in. diameter at the larger end. This silver is thick weighing 197 grams. The barrels and hinges are also thick and strong enough to handle the mammoth size of the piece over all this time. This is an unmarked Mexico City very old piece. I believe it to be from the late 20's. I have seen similar pieces that were signed and they have been lighter in weight and from the pre-48 time frame. This is definitely a time when older is better!
