early Deco Rivera Matl style Mexican silver Necklace ~ jeweled palomas y rosa repousse

on Jun 27, 2017 in archived

Stupendous in both design and craftsmanship as well as early this “palomas y rosa” jeweled silver repousse necklace is signed by maestro Rivera and inspired by Matilde Poulat’s original design. Amethyst, coral and turquoise underscore the bold repoussage that is masterfully executed and impeccably finished. Matl’s early jewelry is becoming increasingly difficult to find but I consider Rivera’s work, especially his pre-1948 pieces, a well-worthy alternative…
