When it comes to vintage Deco Mexican jewelry one cannot go more classic than Spratling’s “hands and tulips”. The necklace I am presenting here, though not signed for maker, is one of the nicest renditions I have seen. Beautifully detailed and masterfully repoussaged hands, deeply carved tulips that end in a curvaceous amethyst “moon” and wide flattened links in the chain combine in an early Taxco treasure…
