Matilde POULAT Matl MEXICAN Silver NECKLACE early repousse PALOMAS design

on Apr 21, 2014 in archived


Early, stunning and in excellent vintage condition, an all-silver repousse Matilde Poulat necklace featuring her favorite dove and rose motifs. I can hardly exaggerate the caliber of the craftsmanship and the attention to every minute detail in the execution of the design. This is indeed a true masterpiece dating in the beginnings of Matl’s career and we all know how difficult it is to find such an old piece by her any more. Spectacular and quite comfortable to wear as well because of the wide inner curve the necklace’s figural links create.


Size/Weight: 17 1/2″ long (wearable; actual length is 18  1/4″); figural part is 9  1/2″ long with its height between 1  7/8″ and 1/2″; 94.1 grams

Hallmarks/Date:  Matl’s name in deeply impressed script as shown as well as “925” in early raised numerals; 1934-48

Condition: excelletn vintage with Matilde’s signature “earthy” repousse, stunning presence, great patina and no flaws noted
