William Spratling (1900-1967) Silver Petate Brooch

William Spratling (1900-1967) Silver Petate Brooch

EARLY TO MID 20TH CENTURY

Radiating modernism in its purest form, this striking sterling silver brooch by acclaimed designer William Spratling is an emblematic piece from the artist's early works in the 1940s. Crafted meticulously in Spratling's renowned Taxco, Mexico studio, the brooch sports an abstract geometric design that exudes a sense of non-conformity, characteristic of the modernist artistic movement. The design draws its inspiration from indigenous basketry, encapsulating Spratling's desire to embrace and celebrate Mexican craftsmanship. This piece, stamped with the artist's logo and the Sterling Silver mark, is not merely a decorative accessory, but a wearable piece of Art history, reflecting Spratling's unique approach during the period.
