The Museum Store: Trunk Show
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 el Viejo, Guerrero, Mexico.
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.
Consuelo Ulrich is the youngest daughter of Alberto Ulrich a storied family of art collectors. She was born in Taxco, Mexico and reared on the legendary Rancho Spratling surrounded by master silversmiths practicing their artistry daily. She attended university in the United States and holds an M.F.A. in Art History.
As both an artist and artisan, Consuelo Ulrich is involved in the entire creative process, from initial sketch to finished piece. The precious metals, rare gemstones and unconventional materials are employed and fashioned by Mexico’s celebrated maestros de plata.
