When was the designation "S. en C."after a company name first used in Mexico, as in 'Cia. Abarrotera "El Cisne" S. en C.'? An answer of the type "was used at least as early as" would also be helpful.

It looks like its part of the Ley General de Sociedades Mercantiles as laid down in 1934.

Vacapinta: I have an antique olive oil label on which the company's name is followed by "S. en C." Judging from the type of printing and the colors used, I would think that this label is from around 1900 to 1910 or perhaps a bit older. Could I be wrong? The company was in Mexico City.

Wikipedia says sociedades en comandita have existed in Mexico since the Ordenanzas de Bilbao (Spain, 1737).
