|A wonderfully handcrafted Taxco Mexican abalone shell mosaic water pitcher made by Salvador Teran c.1950. Teran, an important master Mexican metalsmith and artisan, worked with William Spratling, Margot de Taxco and, his cousin's, the Los Castillos brothers before working under his own name in the mid century.|
The water pitcher body is made of a single piece of thick brass. The base and wooden handle mounts are made of copper. The entire body and base is a beautiful mosaic made of natural abalone shell.The pitcher measures 12 inches in height. It's 4 inches wide at the top and 4½ inches wide at the base. It weighs 2 pounds 3 ounces. The bottom is marked "Taxco" along with part of a very worn Teran makers mark. There's also a very old price tag. In remarkable condition with only light wear, two of the abalone shells are missing, otherwise in good shape.

Most auctions will close at a rate of several items per minute. If a bid is made within the last five minutes, the closing time for that item will be extended for five (5) minutes in order to imitate a live auction as closely as possible.

The buyer agrees to pay all deficiencies, legal, collection, and other fees, including transportation and storage expenses associated with delinquent accounts or abandoned/forfeited items. Premiums and fees remain applicable.
If shipping is required, and is listed as available on the specific auction details, we will use the UPS Shipping Calculator to determine shipping prices. You will also need to add a packaging and handling fee to the invoice price as follows: For small items which will fit in a parcel box, 10lbs or less = $12.00 11lbs to 25lbs = $17.50 26lbs to 50lbs = $23.00. For oversized or items weighing 50lbs or more, call for quote. Weight is calculated using combined weight of the shipped package, including item(s) purchased and any required packaging materials.

You are bidding on the item as it is described. righthandauctions.com makes effort to ensure the descriptions are accurate, and the photos are clear. In the event of an error in the listing, it will be the description and not the photo that will establish the item won.

Your bid remains binding, and retraction is not possible once the auction has begun. We want you to be happy with your experience, so again, PLEASE come to the preview, and satisfy any questions before you bid.
