Large Mexican Sterling Silver Tray By Juventino Lopez Reyes ~ 33.64 Troy Oz.:
Yet another stunning vintage Sterling Silver tray/platter from Mexico. This particular piece, as denoted with the lack of an Eagle hallmark, is dated back to before 1948.
This tray is an amazing 14 inches across and weighs 33.64 troy ounces/1.046 Grams. This tray has a beautiful stylized border around the entire exterior rim.
The hallmark, 0.925, JLR (conjoined), Sterling belongs to Juventino Lopez Reyes. Senor Reyes, according to Bille Hougart's book on Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks states that he was a former silversmith (and eventual maestro) at Maciel. He opened his own workshop, Plateria Del Recreo in 1935. This taller sold fine flatware and hollowware at top outlets, such as Rancho Alegre, Sanborns and Maria de Taxco.
This piece is in amazing condition considering its age. It does have light scratches which are indicative of use and commensurate with its age. It has a beautiful patina, which I will leave intact for the new owner to leave as it is and/or polish.
All of my gemstones are natural, earth mined stones, unless otherwise stated. All of the metals are as hallmarkedor tested. All measurements are taken with an Electronic Digital Caliper, and are therefore approximate.
NOTE: Photos are enlarged to better show you the item you are buying. Please read the description!
