1950's Los Castillos Married Metals Fish Design Shell Form Dish Taxco Mexico
We are offering...
This stand-out shell form dish, made of copper with a silver fish, is an early Los Castillos piece.
This mixed-metal work is called "Married Metals" or "Metales Casados".
The dish sits on 3 spherical feet.
The patina on this piece adds a unique quality that orients its overall design towards the "primitive" side of mid-century design, and aligns it very well with the specific flavor of mid-century design coming out of Mexico.
The figurative abstraction of the fish would make this piece look great under a Rufino Tamayo painting.
