Metales Casados Serving Tray Crab Shaped

About

Metales Casados (Mixed metals): brass and copper with details of Abalone tray in the shape of a crab elaborated by “Los Castillo” workshop in Taxco, Guerrero, Mexico. “Los Castillo” workshop was established by three Castillo brothers: Miguel, Justo & Jorge and a cousin Salvador Vaca Terán in 1937, they were first apprentices and later, master silversmiths at William Spratling´s workshop in Taxco (town of silver production and extremely skilled silversmiths). In the 1950s and 1960s, "Metales Casados" (mixed metals) became a trademark of an original technique of metalwork harmonizing different materials: silver, alpaca, brass, copper, and other metal alloys that produced very original designs highly appreciated worldwide.
