William Spratling silver jewelry, silverware and mixed metals

 
William Spratling was responsible for reviving the Mexican silver industry in Taxco in the 1920s and became known as the "Father of Mexican Silver." He convinced local artisans to use silver from area mines for jewelry (until then they used it only for utilitarian objects) and thus helped established Taxco as a center for making jewelry.
 
Vintage William Spratling silver jewelry, silverware and mixed metals pieces are very much sought after by collectors. Keep an eye out for sterling silver and amethyst bracelets, pendants and brooches (including Spratling's famous tulip designs), mixed metals designs using copper and silver, and Spratling silver dragonfly pins with jasper or abalone, sterling silver and rosewood pieces, and copper and silver metales casados pieces.
 
Spratling reproductions are being produced now, so if it's vintage Spratling that you're looking for, check the listings and sellers carefully -- the best sellers clearly identify reproductions.
