A Pair of Hector Aguilar Mexican Sterling Silver Leaf-Shaped Nut Dishes, circa 1940s

This is a lovely pair of sterling silver nut dishes, made by Hector Aguilar in Mexico in the 1940s. They are wrought in a figural leaf shape with a long "stem" that is twisted into a convenient loop for hooking one's finger through to carry the dish around. They are made of especially heavy solid silver and are in excellent condition.

Each measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/2" x 1". Their combined weight is 229 grams, or 7.36 Troy ounces. They are each marked "TAXCO," with the Aguilar maker's mark, and "940." Hector Aguilar (1905-1986) began working for the famous William Spratling in 1936 and left to start his own workshop in 1939.
