William Spratling, known as the founder of the modern Mexican Silver movement, boldly combined Art Deco and Pre-Columbian motifs in jewelry and tableware design, which are still handmade from the Spratling estate in Taxco el Viejo, Guerrero, Mexico.
Our father Alberto Ulrich, a long-time friend of William, purchased the estate to preserve Spratling’s legacy and has passed it on to his daughters. Today, using the original tools, molds, and methods, Spratling Silver is faithfully reissued with the exclusive permission of the Mexican government. Each piece is an original Spratling design made with solid sterling silver. As in his own lifetime, Spratling’s designs are now made entirely by hand by a modern generation of Mexican silversmiths and sold throughout the world.
From the Spratling ranch, we hope that this catalog serves as an opportunity for you to enjoy the unique vision of beauty and continuing tradition that many have discovered and re-discovered since William Spratling left his mark on the world.
