This is one of the nicest pieces I've seen done in this style by Los Castillo, Taxco--a beautifully hammered, silver plated pitcher with a whimsical, plumed brass bird with stone eyes and inlaid malachite and azurmalachite feathers that "layer" down the handle; a lovely height at  6/1/4" with about 12" around the middle; overall fine condition with no dents; stone inlay is a little dry, but appears to be all intact; marked on the bottom: "LOS CASTILLO, TAXCO, MADE IN MEXICO, PLATERDO, 209."
