Matl style MEXICAN silver repousse BRACELET Deco MASK with coral cabochons

on Sep 19, 2014 in archived


In the tradition established by Matilde Poulat, an early Deco repousse silver bracelet in the so-called Mexico City style, this is a piece for the daring female. Classically “archeological” in inspiration, this mask-dominated bracelet has the hand-crafted characteristics that are so unique to the genre: textured repoussage, an almost naive approach to finishing, a motif that comes out of Mexico’s pre-Colombian past and a primordial appeal that becomes more potent the longer one looks at it.

Unique indeed…
