.....almost pure silver......

This is a rare and very nice 990 silver (purer than sterling) button by Hector Aguilar in the petate style. Sporting a simply beautiful patina, a real treasure! I have 5 of these buttons and this listing is for a SINGLE. Select more quantity if you want more.

Hector Aguilar began working for William Spratling in 1936 before opening his own workshop in 1939. Aguilar had many, many well known craftsmen working for him during the years and he was also involved in many innovative Taxco ventures. Penny Morrill has dedicated a whole book to Aguilar and the Taller Borda called Silver Masters of Mexico. Aguilar's work is highly desired.

Hallmark: HA 990 Taxco

Condition: Excellent vintage - I have only lightly buffed, you may wish to polish more, though I think the patina is just perfect
