Lovely 2-piece Taxco Sterling and Rosewood serving Set, mid 20th c., Marked JS script in a circle.
The serving fork has sterling three prong tines with a double band on the tapering stem. The spoon is designed to match. Each mounted with a rosewood handle. The tapered stems are marked “Taxco JS Sterling” / 925 Mexico".
Excellent condition. There appears to be a faint scratch on the fork handle but only noticeable by feel, not by sight.
The maker, “JS” is listed in the hallmark book but the artisan is unknown.
