Classic William Spratling famous "Petate" sterling pin, Mexico, c.1945. The mysterious "petate" is one of the most compelling designs ever conceived. It is signed "SPRATLING SILVER & WS (around which says)SPRATLING MADE IN MEXICO". Made of very heavy gauge silver, it measures just shy of 3" by 2 1/2". Excellent condition with a bit of silver solder on the back. A must for the Spratling collector and anyone who appreciates great design. photographed in "SPRATLING SILVER" by Sandraline Cederwall on pp.76-77.....$30 for insured USA shipping plus applicable NY sales tax.
