About this title


Over 70 brilliant artworks by the legendary William Spratling—adventurer, celebrity, and world-renowned silver artisan—are presented in this stunning centennial edition of the acclaimed Spratling Silver. An eagle's profile carved gracefully into the rosewood handle of a 1930s pitcher; the subtle essence of a sea animal in a classic brooch: the exquisite detail and splendor of such unique creations are showcased here in all their lustrous glory. Included are commentaries from Spratling's friends and contemporaries (the likes of Georgia O'Keeffe, who was photographed wearing one of his pins on her austere black dress), which paint an intimate portrait of the man instrumental in reviving Mexico's silver industry in the late 1920s. With 26 additional photographs, an expanded text, and a new hallmarks section with information for collectors, Spratling Silver is the only comprehensive volume to portray the full scope and beauty of William Spratling's treasures.

Store Description

Member: Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America, International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, Southern New England Antiquarian Booksellers. "One of the finest in N.E. (&) the premier used book shop on Cape Cod." - Used Book Lover's Guide. We are a general used and rare book shop with about 70,000 volumes. Located half way between Falmouth and Hyannis (4632 Falmouth Rd, Rte 28), we are named in honor of the famous colonial era printer and philanthropist, founder (1812) of the American Antiquarian Society in Worcester. We started in Worcester in 1969, and moved to the Cape in 1990. Impressed with architectural craftmanship, in Worcester we were stewards and renewers of a decorative Queen Anne Victorian. Here on the Cape we take care of the newest (1860) Crocker family home in the village of Cotuit, part of the town of Barnstable: a tall peaked Italianate Victorian now painted pink and four other colors. The owner's training has included work in four libraries and apprenticeship with bookseller Irving Ephraim (1908-1989) of Worcester who began his own career during the depression. Able assistants have always been and known the meaning of 'book people.' Remembering with fondness Mr. E. and the enormous influence of our home town librarians, we try to continue their tradition of service. Inquiries and orders gratefully received. 508-428-2752. visit us in our open shop on Cape Cod. Open Tuesday - Saturday 10-5, Sunday 12-5. Open Monday in the summer.
