Handwrought in sterling silver & stone, this detailed 1940's pin measures 2 3/4" across X 1". Combining rich jewel tones, a complex silver background and reflected light Spratling makes his design POP. Silver, stones, and pin back are in beautiful condition. Fully hallmarked.
This design is featured in LACMA's 20th Century Mexican silver collection. Also pictured on p.97 of WILLIAM SPRATLING AND THE MEXICAN SILVER RENIASSANCE by Penny Morrill and on Phyllis Goddard's website spratlingsilver.com. Spratling used a similar combination of stone & carved silver in the exceptional circular pin/pendant listed separately on our site. Called the Sun Brooch, the circular design is also included in the LACMA collection.
