An exceptional vintage Mexican silver change holder by Taxco Silver Master William Spratling. This very rare piece is from Spratling's earliest design phase. It features an amazing, central sun figure bordered by stars ~ all created in well executed, richly textured repousse. The piece has beautiful depth of field, and marvelous artistic attitude. It is set into a hand cut piece of hard wood. In fine vintage condition ~ with some wear showing to the wood element. (I believe this could be polished out, but will be sending it in as is condition.) Fully and correctly hallmarked. Measures 4 1/2" square at the base with an approximate 1 1/4" rise. Provenance to important, museum quality collection of vintage Mexican and Native American silver. A exceptional piece for the casual or serious collector and admirer of vintage Mexican silver.
