The only words for this Matl by Matilde Poulat is museum quality. I searched other examples of the amethyst chain and turquoise drop and found several with all different arrangements. Properly hallmarked for a pre 1948 and one of the treasures made while Matilde Poulat was working her Taller. The weight is 146 grams heavy and has a 17in.wearable length that is quite comfortable. The turquoise stones are warmed in color and all are present. There is no damage of any kind on this jewel. The drop is 5 inches across with both side links and is 4.25in. tall with the dangles. The carving on top of the repousse construction is absolutely stunning. This is one of those pieces of Spratling Silver era that you should not pass up, just LOOK AT THAT NECKLACE!
