Rangel Hidalgo Cupboard, Comala, Colima, RARE


Priced in Mexican Pesos. Rangel Hidalgo Cupboard, Period Pieces, a very rare piece with the hand painting in excellent condition.  Notice the beautiful hand forged harware, designed by Rangel Hidalgo and forged at the cooperativo.

The base is 49" wide, 20" deep and 25 1/2" tall, the upper section is 13" deep.  The overall heighth is 90" to the top of the finial.  This is from my personal collection.

From the small town of Comala, Colima ( a true Pueblo Magico, I would highly recommend visiting there someday).

The cooperative there was founded by 2 of the Rangel Hidalgo brothers in the 60's.

The height of it's productivity was in the 1960s and 70's. All hand made of high quality materials, hand painted, excellent craftsmanship. You never see a piece of Rangel Hidalgo furniture that is wobbly or coming apart.

In 1947 he traveled to Europe to spend two years touring art centers and museums in Spain and France through a scholarship, it is there where he works for a time as a set designer for ballets and operas. Back in Mexico he began working as a book illustrator, working with foreign and Mexican writers. He was the creator of a collection of Christmas cards that, when traveling around the world, received awards from Unicef ​​and made him worthy of important recognitions, with the collection of Pre-Hispanic Angels and Angels of this world . In 1993 he obtained the prize for Arts and Humanities. He developed his designer facet when he founded the Comala School of Crafts.
