William Spratling was the father of the renaissance of Mexican silver jewelry, which started in the 1930's. His pieces are perhaps the best-known from this period, and from the marks on this bracelet, I have determined that it was made sometime between 1933 and 1939. As the photographs show, it is marked Taxco, followed by his WS mark, which came from the brand he used on his horses at that time! The next mark is 980 for the silver content, and then Mexico. This cuff is in very good condition, especially considering that it is over 70 years old, and I have left the patina undisturbed. As you would expect in a Spratling piece of this age, the raised areas feature a pre-Columbian design which I would call a swirling triangle.

This bracelet has an inside measurement of 6 1/4 inches with a 1 1/4 inch gap, and it is solid, so it is not adjustable. The width of this piece is 1/2 of an inch, and it weighs 50.4 grams. What's important about this cuff isn't its statistics, however - you can look at it as a piece of jewelry or history, as an investment, or all three.
