Pepe Mendoza Mexican Modern Cloisonné Lidded Box
José Mendoza ran a foundry called Pepe Mendoza in the 1950s and 60s in Mexico City, manufacturing modernist home accessories using a modified cloissonné technique more suited to the tastes of the day.
This example is a rectangular lidded box with squiggles and navettes in brass against a field of turquoise vitreous enamel. The lid is topped with the same oblong oval shaped handle.
Retains original label.
8" width x 4" depth x 3" height
Excellent vintage condition; brass has an irregular patina and slight wear consistent with age and use. Gently cleaned to preserve the patina.
