William Spratling Parrot Amethyst Estate Pin

This distinct and collectible Mid-Century Modernist brooch hails from the Vintage William Spratling Jewelry Collection. It is from the Taxco region of Mexico and is crafted with 980 sterling silver, which contains more silver than the 925 sterling silver commonly used in jewelry. This unique piece depicts a parrot encountering an amethyst berry and is a classic example of William Spratling's early design aesthetic. It has been featured in renowned art historians Penny Morrill and Carole Berk's book, Mexican Silver, and is an ideal investment piece for collectors.
