Old Matl Matilde Poulat Paloma's Vintage Mexican Silver Necklace

Home

From the Spratling era Matilde Poulat's work is one of my very favorite. Her style was Mexico City folk and she took that style and worked creative magic . This one holds one of the earliest hallmarks and shows her early work with a clear faceted gem. It has the back of the silver cut out for light which later on she did not continue that process. The drop across is 5 in. and the height is 2.5in. The clasp is jeweled and the wearable length is 17.5in. This is a heavy weight of 70 grams. The stones are warmed with age and a lovely patina. I love the smaller size of this Matl because you can wear it with anything and to everything. One of the ways that I look for the best examples of Matl is to look at the birds. These are plump little baby birds with a perfect loveable shape. Also, the carving on the top of the birds is wonderfully executed. The oldest Matl designs are harder to get today and this one is a real treasure of collector quality, just LOOK AT THAT NECKLACE!
