Sterling Silver High Relief Sculptured Tray & 12 Hors D'oeuvres Picks Or Forks For Sale
This is a vintage Mexican sterling silver set,
featuring a GORGEOUS two-sided sculptured high relief triangular tray and 12
hors d'oeuvre picks or forks (see photos below). The 12 picks feature
silver images of a donkey, lariat, large foot, water Olla jug, serape, house,
man wearing a sombrero over his face (or maybe a view from the back), a man
taking a siesta, a decorative sombrero, flames or fire, a cactus patch, and a
prickly cactus plant. The picks measure 3.50" to 3.75" long and each is
signed on the underside: TAXCO STERLING 925, and then BM
inside a circle (see last photo below).
The sterling silver tray is really beautiful.
It's triangular-shaped with sculptured high relief ART NOUVEAU decorations
entirely covering the surface. You see a large vase of fruit in three
corners (I THINK it's fruit), then lots of raised scrolls, swirls, beads,
and curli-cues everywhere. The tray measures 4" across by 3.50" down at
all the longest and widest parts and it's carved from just one piece of silver.
It appears as though the decorations were punched out from the underside (see
second-from-last photo below). The three edges of the tray are slightly
turned up, so I would imagine that this would hold the hors d'oeuvres. The
tray is not signed but it definitely is sterling silver. A very nice
jeweler in my area tested it for me and pronounced it indeed sterling, maybe
more even than .925!
The set in in overall excellent vintage
condition. Everything weighs in at 1.6 ounces or 46 grams on my postal
scale. There's NO damage or dents or anything else wrong with the tray.
A stems on a couple of the picks are a little bent, but you probably won't even
notice. The craftsmanship on the tray is awesome!
