Matl style Mexican silver repousse Bracelet ~ Deco jade masquette design

on Oct 19, 2017 in archived

Very reminiscent of Matilde Poulat’s early, bold repousse jewelry, this Mexican Deco “jade masquette” example is imposing in its workmanship and perplexing in its anonymity! Masterfully crafted, the entirety of its surface is meticulously chased, stamped and hand-hammered and the jade masquette that centers it adds to its commanding presence. Most probably a bracelet from Mexico City where Poulat was also based…
