Mexican Sterling Silver Tray by Sanborns

$4,000 AUD

Tax included.

This piece is a midcentury, sterling silver serving tray by Sanborns, Mexico. When Frank Sanborn found a lack of quality silversmithing in Mexico in the 1920s, despite Mexico leading the world in silver production, he set out to bring a new world competitor to the industry. By the 1940s Sanborn's annual sales in silverwork came to $250,000 and 10 years later was the biggest silver shop in Mexico. This piece is a testament to the company's dedication to quality and design.
