Mexican Hand Carved Parlor Bench: Provenance/Manuel J. Zevada


Peso Priced Item.  A fine hand carved Mexican Mahogany parlor bench.  This was recovered in the past with a fine cut velvet.  It measures 62" wide, 28" deep. The back is 39" tall and the seat is 18" high. This is from the Estate of Manuel J. Zevada, ca. 1920

Manuel Zevada was Mexico's Secretary of Commerce when President Lazaro Cardenas nationalized the oil fields in Mexico (1938).  In 1941 it was Zevada's task to determine which company got how much for their oil fields and plants.  The story goes that the Rockefellers (Standard Oil) got the largest payout even though they owned one of the smallest amounts of Mexican Oil.   Go Figure!! ..
