This iconic Spratling design from his first design period was inspired by Codex Vindobonesis Mexicanos, a ritual calendrical and genealogical piece of Mixtec writing depicting Pre-Columbian deities, animals, birds, and architecture. It is a book piece design featured in MEXICAN SILVER by Morrill and Berk (p 43).
Crafted of 980 silver (98% pure), it is a beautiful piece comprised of four wide deeply-carved scrollwork links alternating with four narrow links with applied half-spheres, all connected by jump rings with a secure hook closure. Suitable for both men and women, the extraordinary bracelet measures just over 1” wide x 8 1/2” long and weighs 108 grams.
In excellent vintage condition, this highly collectible piece is hallmarked “980 WS Taxco”, dating it to the 1930s.
