RARE 1930's art deco Mexican silver tea set with teapot cream sugar and original tray. The pot and the creamer have lovely dark burled wood handles. The four pieces are silver plated, and the tray has a slight uplift on both ends which serves as a handle so the tray doesn't sit flush with the surface. Fully signed on the bottom so please enlarge the photo. I've not been able to find anything close to this anywhere. Hecho en Mexico, I M P, Plado and 854. Must say it also has a mid century modern feel about it.
CONDITION: Really lovely vintage with a small dle on the creamer and the sugar. Didn't even notice right away and one of the photos shows this. The lidded sugar has tiny spots on it. Didn't over-clean but took all the black oxidization off, so you can leave it or take it to another level depending on your taste.
SIZE: Approx! pot is 4 3/4 inches tall x 7 3/4 inches wide and 10 inches including the handle, creamer is 4 1/2 inches wide and 7 3/4 inches including the handle. Lidded sugar is 3 1/2 inches tall x 3 1/2 inches across. Tray measures 17 inches long x 9 inches wide

Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
Downsizing was inevitable and I've done it several times already. This is the big one, and I am still unboxing treasures retrieved from storage after decades.
All pieces are one of a kind handpicked by yours truly over 40 years to add texture, style and story to your authentic style.
My collecting story starts after watching Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor as a young girl, I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new.
Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
