Salvador Teran, one of the Mexican silver master smiths, was working in the Spratling shop as early as 1934. He went on to open a shop in 1952 called "La India Bonita" which employed twenty-five silversmiths. This pair of earrings, stylized leaves with turquoise mosaic inlay, are of a thick gauge sterling (1/8"), 1 3/4"L x 3/4"W. They retain the original screwbacks, and are duly hallmarked. Excellent condition.
