This amazing pin was designed by the Taxco silver maestro, William Spratling. Based on traditional Mesomayan images, it is commonly termed the "Jaguar" pin. It is 4 1/2" long x 2 1/2" wide and is hand crafted from repousse sterling silver. It has 6 amethyst cabochons on the border and the reverse has a secure pin closure with safety clutch. The pin has two early repairs at the tongue and shoulder, and one cabochon has a stable fracture. None of this takes away from the beauty of this pin. It is hallmarked with the "WS" script mark and "Spratling Silver".
