What a day today was! I am so excited to post my findings today, it was just one of those days, every collector knows what I am talking about, I felt like someone was planting things to trick me.
I don't usually go to Estate Sales, normally because I am a very late sleeper, but today I decided to give it a go. The place was a few minutes from home, in a 55 and over community, and man....am I happy I went! In full honesty, if I were 4 minutes later to arrive, I would have missed everything I am about to post.
This piece is amazing. The pictures above, do not do it justice, I may have to post more. I scouted this one out beforehand on the Estate Sale website, so I knew it was there. It is about 2 ft. by 2 ft., all hand hammered steel, or alpaca or whatever it is. There are hallmarks all over the place on every tiny piece of metal. The very middle is a mirror (what you see in the picture is the opposing wall). There is a signing on the back in blue marker:
"Ser-Mel Hecho En Mexico"
There is also one very small white tag under the mirror (I took it out to clean, the old cardboard was very moldy so I used new). Looking at it again under light, no exaggertation, every single piece has its own hallmark on it. Please post your ideas I am very interested!!!
Thanks and enjoy.
