Pair of vintage sterling silver and rosewood "supper" candlesticks designed and signed circa 1950's by American & Taxco, Mexico artist William Spratling (1900-67). Spratling referred to this design as "supper" candlesticks in his 1958-59 catalog. Each stick stands 3" high. A rosewood circle midway down on the stem is inset with 6 silver buttons. The silver bases are each 3" across. The pair weigh 117 grams, 6.07oz.
Both silver and rosewood in beautiful condition. Pictured on Phyllis Goddard's excellent website spratlingsilver.com where she states that this design was included in the museum exhibit THE WORLD OF WILLIAM SPRATLING which traveled throughout the U.S. in 1965. Spratling designs are the centerpiece of the permanent 20th Century Mexican silver collection at Los Angeles County Museum of Art - LACMA.
