Other Notes: William Spratling is credited with gaining worldwide attention for Taxco silver. He traveled to Taxco off and on, finally settling there and organizing the local silversmiths who had been producing silver items for 400 years without any real economic benefit to themselves. Spratling himself became a silversmith while living in Taxco. What transpired from this humble beginning was an explosion of arts and artists that produced the exceptional objects that proudly bear the name Taxco.

  • Small inherent imperfections in bodies due to hand-hamered manufacture.
    coffeepot: cover loose due to bent hinge pin
    creamer: good condition
    covered sugar: slightly uneven on base
    ladle: very good original condition
    jigger: very good original condition
