Luxury Design, Past & Present
Spratling chose hand carved jade frogs interspersed with silver & turquoise frogs in this rare, imaginative & captivating 1940's design. Weighing 80 grams the bracelet measures 7 inches long X 3/4 inch wide. The multi-colored jade frogs stand 1/2 inch high. All in beautiful condition with excellent patina. Original safety chain removed by a previous owner. We will supply a contemporary safety chain if you wish. Most often seen in amethyst, this design is pictured in Spratling Silver: A Field Guide by Phyllis Goddard. Also on p.39 of Mexican Silver, 4th edition by Penny Morrill & Carole Berk & in Mexican Silver Jewelry by Muriel Karasik. Spratling designs anchor the large Mexican silver collection in the Latin American wing of Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
