Sterling silver & rosewood pin or brooch designed and signed circa 1942 by American and Taxco, Mexico designer William Spratling(1900-67). Pin measures 2" X 2 1/4". Wood and silver are in beautiful condition. Pinback and lock are tight and secure. Fully signed by Spratling on the reverse. Spratling designed this pin during WW2 to help raise funds for the Red Cross. He also used the clasped hands across the America's as the letter head on his personal stationary.

Spratling designs are a major focus of the permanent 20th Century Mexican silver collection at LACMA - Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
