Spratling Necklace Iconic

I picked this up last fall at an antique show. I wish I could say I got a good price too but lets say I got it at a very reasonable price. The findings are interesting as both ends hook on to the main centerpiece. Hands holding flowers is probably the most recognizeable and copied of all Spratling pieces. Properly marked with WS and SPRATLING SILVER in oval cartouche.

ANTONIO Bracelet - Recent Acquisition

Severe Hawtness! I shop a LOT and I had never seen this bracelet until the Antonio Exhibit at the Fowler - its pictured in the catalog. Its a great piece. As I was wearing it, I was afraid that it would accidentally pop someones eye out with those protrusions! LOL! Just kidding - its a FABULOUS piece that is going into the permanent collection.
