early Matl Matilde Poulat Mexican silver and coral Earrings

on Mar 31, 2020 in archived

From the earlier part of Matilde Poulat’s magically creative career this set of silver and red coral earrings is characterized by her textured wirework, beading and bezel-set stones. Almost understated when compared to Matl’s usually bold designs, it reminds me of inverted question marks. I love the classic elegance and the way the dark patina of the silver makes the saturated color of the cabs pop…

 

Size/Weight: 1 1/2″ tall by 1″ wide; 11.5 grams (for the set)

Hallmarks / Date: signed with maker’s signature in script; not hallmarked for metal content but tested and guaranteed to be silver of at least .900 purity yet most probably sterling; pre-1948

Condition: excellent vintage with strong yet not overwhelming presence, great patina and rich color in the coral, with no damage and no repairs noted

Inv.#14064
