The 1850 House Museum takes pride in carrying 11 local artist from Louisiana, 4 out of state vendors, and Spratling Silver jewelry which comes from the original molds of William Spratling.
William Spratling, known as the founder of the modern Mexican Silver movement, boldly combined Art Deco and Pre-Columbian motifs in jewelry and tableware design, which are still handmade from the Spratling estate in Taxco, Guerrero, Mexico. Alberto Ulrich, a long-time friend of William, purchased the estate to preserve Spratling’s legacy and has passed it on to his daughters. Today, using the original tools, molds and methods, Spratling Silver is faithfully reissued with the exclusive permission of the Mexican government. Each piece is an original Spratling design made with solid sterling silver.
As in his own lifetime, Spratling’s designs are now made entirely by hand by a modern generation of Mexican silversmiths, and sold throughout the world.
