A Mexican Taxco Silver Malachite Bracelet by William Spratling

£375.00

Description

very typical of his simplistic designs and stunning contrast between the hand crafted silver and the vivid green malachite.

The story of Taxco silver is a fascinating one of American connoisseurs and Mexican artisans combining their talents to produce some of the finest hand crafted silver jewellery of the early to mid twentieth century. The magical history of silver from Taxco is steeped in legend and fact. Spratling opened his first taller (or studio) in 1931 in Taxco and from there the crucible of stunning pieces of jewellery, flatware and decorative objects — was born.
