Impressive in its generous width, with a gorgeous greenish blue turquoise bezel-set in its central station, this early Matilde Poulat silver bracelet is wrought en repoussage in the “Mexico City style“ she came to represent. Malt’s repousse work leaves the journey of the silversmith’s tools on the jewelry created intentionally visible and that for me brings her close to the philosophy of the Arts and Crafts movement. Yet she is also as “Mexican Deco” as anyone could ever be - her pieces are big, bold, daring, not for the faint of heart. Here the textured links, stylized representations of Quetzalocoatl’s scaly body, wrap themselves effortlessly around the wrist in a comfortable, serpentine embrace…

SIZE / WEIGHT: 6 3/4” long (wearable) by 1 3/4” wide; 74.1 grams

HALLMARKS / DATE: “MATL” in raised letters as shown; 1930s-40s

CONDITION: excellent vintage with great patina, beautiful texture in the hand-hammered links and a stunning stone, with no damage or repairs that I can see; kindly note that there are seven links to this bracelet - three on one side of the turquoise station and four on the other
