The quality of craftsmanship displayed on these sterling plates is remarkable. Further, they are handsome examples of mid-century modern design.

The marks do not include the maker’s name or logo.  The M indicates that they were made in Mexico City. The 01 registry number was used by a number of silversmiths, so I cannot attribute the plates to a specific maker. He was, however, obviously one of the best.

The diameter of the large plates allows them to be used in today’s style as chargers under a dinner plate or as traditional service plates.

The large plates are 11 3/4 inches in diameter. They weigh 18 troy ounces each  (217 troy ounces total) and are in very fine condition.

The small plates are 6 ¼ inches in diameter.  They perfect are perfect for bread and butter, dessert, and for use with cocktails. They weigh 5.3 troy ounces each (63.6 troy ounces total)
