Early 19th century Spanish colonial sterling silver (or higher) Braserillo (Brazier) with a raised fluted cup, scalloped rim and baluster stem fastened to an ovular dish. Assayer's mark of Cayetano Buitron (active 1823-43), the fiscal stamp in the form of the eagle and the Mexico stamp (a capital 'M'). The brazier bears marks on the underside of the pan and the underside of the cup. There are also two burilada marks (assayer marks for silver content) in the form of hatched lines.
A Brazier, for those unfamiliar, is a container which was used to hold live coals -- passed at the table for guests to light cigars or cigarettes.
* The other silver and ceramic accessories are shown for scale only and are not part of this listing.
Dimensions: please note the scale. This brazier is considerably larger than most other period examples that we have handled. Measures 11 inches long x 4 inches wide x 5 inches high.
In excellent, original condition. High quality silver.
