Silver Box/chest need help with identification ("GPR")

Postby stams » Sat Jan 11, 2020 10:53 am

Does someone know more about the origin of this box and the maker? Can't find anything about the hallmark, everything says "unidentified."
Thank you!

"GPR" surrounded by "Hecho en Mexico DF" with "sterling 925"

DF puts the maker in the Federal District of Mexico City.

Hi,

Welcome to the Forum.

The design is the Aztec or Mexica calendar. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aztec_calendar
