LPAC - Hecko in Mexico

Postby Sher67 » Sun Apr 10, 2016 1:05 pm

We recently acquired a set of salt and pepper shakers on a small tray....all are marked LPAC (nothing else) and then under Hecko in Mexico. They appear to look like mother of pearl (I suspect they may have some other material on the sides of the tray and shakers). It is turquoise in colour.

Anyone know who the maker is?

Thanks,

SJ Hawkins

The mark is Hecho en Mexico (Made in Mexico), the other mark is Alpaca, for the metal, an alloy of nickel, copper and zinc, no silver. The inlay could be Abalone or a blue resin with chips in it to resemble turquoise. Pics would of course help narrow it down.
