Mid-Century Sterling Silver Mexican Bowl by Juvento Lopes Reyes
A Mexican sterling silver dish made by Juvento Lopes Reyes in Mexico City, circa 1950. This silver dish has a perfectly circular form; it has a fantastic patina, smooth all around. The bowl is raised by undulating lines that serve as the legs. The lines are Aztec inspired, and have a organic look, accenting the simple minimalist bowl quite nicely. On the base you can see the the maker's marks JLR and its marks for Sterling Silver as well as "Made in Mexico" marks. Juventino Lopez Reyes is a well-known Mexican silversmith, highly sought after for his superb designs and quality workmanship among silver collectors. He worked at the renowned Maciel Silver Factory in Mexico until he opened his own workshop "Plateria del Recero" in 1935. This silver dish weighs 400 grams or approximately 12.8 troy ounces. The bowl opens wide, at about 7 inches in diameter. It is 3- 3/4 inches tall and it is raised by the curvilinear forms by 3/4 of an inch. The bowl is in near perfect condition and makes not only a great silver piece but also a notable vintage collector's item. Great for a table centerpiece, with a subtle modern look with an elegant design.
