Matl style Rivera Mexican silver jeweled Hand Mirror

on Mar 15, 2018 in archived

Vintage Rivera sterling silver “palomas” hand mirror, this is a Mexican beauty that follows similar pieces by Matilde Poulat. Matl’s signature wirework, folky dove motifs and her love of amethyst, turquoise and coral as embellishments are copied here in the best possible way. Maestro Rivera is known among collectors as one of the best silversmiths in the so-called Poulat school and I have never been disappointed in the quality of his creations. Definitely luxurious…


Size/Weight: 5  1/8″ tall by 2  3/8″ wide; 41.4 grams

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s signature as shown as well as registration code “MR-38” alongside “HECHO EN MEXICO 925”; 1980s

Condition: excellent vintage with beautiful workmanship, gorgeous stones and patina to die for; the mirror is in great shape as well, with no clouding or any other issues – perfectly useable; a small impression on the side of the repousse handle, toward the bottom, has oxidized over the years and does not offend in any way
