Moorish-Style Silver Ewer By Tane
Grandly crafted in intricate Islamic style, this masterpiece of silver was made by the renowned Mexican silver shop of Tane, probably around 1955. It is modeled after a Spanish Renaissance creation of the Thirteenth Century and sports a lively dragon handle and spout, both deeply carved. The paneled sides have magnificent designs engraved to emulate superb tapestries. Weighing in at some three pounds and measuring some 8-1/2 inches tall and nine inches at the spout, it is pleasure to serve from and is in mint condition. Marks on the rim inside the base: "Made in Mexico, Sterling Silver," "Tane" and the eagle-and-serpent arms of Mexico.
