One of Spratling's early designs, the "ring with three cascabeles" possesses the primordial charm of ambitious beginnings that are nonetheless steeped in the creativity of ancient cultures. I believe the motif is the same here as that in the tortoise shell and silver "snake" box - the more I look at it, the more I think of writhing serpents with spotted skins. The cascabeles are simply the melodious cherry that tops an already superb piece. Even though it is obvious that the ring has been resized at some point and can now be enjoyed as a pinky, I am thrilled to have stumbled across it and so will whoever becomes its caretaker in the future... Currently a sz 4.5 the ring varies between 3/4" and 7/16" in width and weighs 7.0 grams. It is marked with Spratling's "WS" print signature as shown in the photos and dates in the 1931-1946 period. It is in excellent vintage condition with fantastic patina and great presence, with no damage or repairs noted other than the fact that it has been resized in the past.
