One Good Eye Silver
for necklace and earrings
One of the best vintage 1950s Taxco sterling silver and stone necklaces I have seen, this chunky, spectacular piece is accompanied by matching dangle earrings. Classy cylinder-and-box construction, only here the colors in the azur-malachite are to die for and the heft of the box links gently softened by geometric cut-outs. The necklace is 18 1/8" long (wearable; once clasped it gains a little and goes up to 18 1/2") with the cylinder links being approx...

A rare sterling silver ring by William Spratling set with a Shell swirl studded with silver rivets. Measures about a size 6. Dates from about 1951. Marked with the script 'WS' and 925. There is a small loss of shell to the point on one end of the swirl. The other point has a tiny flake to the end. The damage is on the sides so when you are wearing it, they are not very noticeable. The ring has some tarnish and minor surface scratches. Very hard to find piece of Spratling jewelry.

Early Mexican Deco repousse silver necklace in a design closely associated with Matilde Poulat, I believe this piece to have been made in Mexico City where Matl worked as well and it bears the signature of a listed maker about whom we don't really know much more. Nicely made, with good sculpturality in the graduated rose links and a hefty, hand-wrought chain that helps adjust the necklace's length, this is a beautiful example of repoussage from the opening decades of the 20th c....
