Shell inlaid silver-plate with a rosewood bowl insert with two age related cracks. A tour de force from Los Castillo, the great Taxco silver smiths. Price on request.
A flock of trays. Almost abstract in design yet completely alive and characterized. The mark of these inspired craftsmen's work is the decorative arts quickened by the imagination. Silver and brass over copper, lapis eyes. Price on request
What a creature! Gorgeous, bold and graceful, with a real life to it. A tremendous personality to the characterization married to exquisite workmanship. No mark. Very Los Castillo to our eyes, given their specialty of "marrying" different metals. Certainly golden age of the Taxco silversmiths. Price on request.
