This is one of the most iconic items created by Hector Aguilar in his Taller Borda in the early 1940s. It is featured in Silver Masters of Mexico by Penny Morrill on page 120. She describes the candelabra thusly: “The eye follows the tumbling spirals as though they were lines in relief. Balance and movement coexist as the spirals push upward toward the light of the candles”. What a well-crafted description of this beauty! Made primarily of copper with brass accents, the candelabra is signed on the base with a conjoined HA on a recessed circle, it is numbered 994 and also marked Taxco. It measures 10 ¼ inches long, 6 ½ inches tall, and 2 ¼ inches wide. I have left this stunner unpolished, as many people prefer to retain the rich decades-old patina. It is also missing one of its brass balls on the end scroll, as pictured. There are no dents or dings and the candle holders themselves are fully intact. A true treasure – exceptionally rare and hard to find – a work of art by one of the mid century metal Masters of Taxco. $305.00
