For sale here is a RARE pair of vintage 1950s handmade 'metales casados' (married metals) sterling, copper, and brass Mexican modernist salt and pepper shakers from Los Castillo of Taxco. One of, if not the, premier design house in Taxco in 1950s in large part due to the genius of Chato Castillo who invented this technique of seamlessly joining different metals. Copied by many, but never equaled in quality of construction and original design! This pair of salt and peppers are design number 95, sometimes called the 'patchwork' design, and used by Los Castillo in the construction of all sorts of objects including pitchers, trays, bowls, tumblers, and even in some jewelry designs. This is the largest size of the married metal shakers made by Los Castillo in the 1950s. They measures 4-5/8" tall by 1-7/8" diameter at the base, and the pair weigh 166.4 grams total or 5.35 troy ounces. I have not touched these shakers, but they could be polished to look like new if you prefer. Excellent vintage condition with just very fine light wear and some tarnish as shown in the photos - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
