Spratling Silver Teapot and Sugarbowl - Ovalado pattern
Reference: S1120
Period: George VI
Year: 1944-1946
Silversmith: William Spratling
Place: Mexico
Price: $ 2 100.00
Weight: 840 (sugarbowl 260, teapot 580) grams
Dimensions: teapot 17.5 cm height
Condition: Good, the teapot spout has a small repair. The sugarbowl does not have a lid, but this does not detract from the piece.

Description: A beautiful Arts and Craft teapot and sugarbowl, with rosewood handles attached with silver rivets, and a conch shell motif, inspired by an Aztec design. These are from the Spratling First Design Period (1931-1946), and have the WS Print circle hallmark and Sterling mark. Spratling was an American architect who settled in Taxco, Mexico, and revived the art of silversmithing there. A similar teapot (but with a silver handle) is illustrated on page 47 of the book Spratling Silver, Centennial Edition, by Sandraline Cederwall and Hal Riney.
