Early Deco Mexican silver repousse bracelet, this piece is based on a Matilde Poulat design, made by one of the maestra’s contemporaries who chose to remain anonymous. Highly textured serpent scale links – an allusion to Quetzalcoatl, the divine feathered serpent? – held together with invisible hinges and a gorgeous jasper cabochon combine to create a signature Mexico City bracelet. Good craftsmanship, great patina and very good condition make it a must-have for all of us who love the primordial power of this type of jewelry…
