OUTSTANDING COLONIAL MEXICO SPANISH STERLING SILVER COVERED FOOTED BOWL MARKED
A museum grade Mexican covered silver bowl signed and fully marked and made in Mexico City in the late 18th early 19th century. Fantastic foliate scrolls around top and bottom sections with fine hand wrought segmentation. Acorn and oak leaf knob and completely hand chased and made. Stands 8" tall and about 7" wide. Weighs about 33 ounces troy maybe a bit more as my scales can't weigh this much. Fantastic and exceptionally rare early Mexican silver piece with the flying eagle hallmark M Mexico city hallmark and signed A. Ochoa E Hijos. Signature on base appears to be a double stamp so looks different. Circa 1800 perhaps as early as 1780. Condition is very good with no monograms or damage. Exceptionally rare piece.
