Hector Aguilar (1905-1986) joined William Spratling's Taller de La Delicias where he too became one of Mexico's most esteemed master silversmiths. He opened his own workshop Taller Borda in 1939, where he created highly collectible jewelry, flatware, and serving pieces.
This beautiful sterling silver Aguilar fork and spoon serving set is crafted in his Aztec pattern. This iconic pattern appears in both MEXICAN SILVER by Morrill and Berk (p. 107), and SILVER MASTERS OF MEXICO by Penny Morrill (p. 112, 145, 147, 163).
The set (c. 1940s) is in excellent condition. The fork measures 8 7/8” long and weighs 88 grams, and the 8 1/2” spoon weighs 84 grams. Both are hallmarked "Sterling Taxco, conjoined HA, eagle assay 9.” A rare find.
