Sterling silver hallmarked tray handmade by known Mexican artist Juventino Lopez Reyes. 925 Sterling Silver, made in Mexico.
10 1/2 inches wide by 15 inches long (not including handles)
weighs 28oz
NOTE: there is a slight ding in the tray that occurred during transit. It can be fixed but I will leave that up to the seller.

This tray was given by a Mexican official to a Swiss Diplomat in the ILO for services rendered to his country. In turn, the diplomat gave to to my father as a token of appreciation for HIS services!
This tray started in Mexico, traveled to Switzerland, Italy, Malta and the UK and is now in the USA!
It shows some signs of wear and has a ding but weighs almost 2lbs!! over 700gms
The price of silver today is about $38 an oz. This tray weighs just over 28oz
That would make it $1064 in weight only. The craftmanship is not taken into consideration.

Beginning his career at the tender age of 10, JLR started operating the bellows for the silver smelting at Plateria Maciel. After years of observing and learning, Juventino opened his own shop, the Plateria del Recreo (Mexico City) in 1935. After a short time, he decided to specialize in flatware and hollowware. Most of his styles were classic, not modern. That fact makes these candlesticks all the more interesting, due to their very modern design.
The plateria is still in business, and is now managed by his son, Juventino Lopez Manrique.

This will be carefully packed and insured.: for more silver -
