One of the best maestros that worked in the style closely associate with Matilde Poulat, A. Tobias is truly masterful in his repousse. The brooch at hand, a big oval-shaped piece, features a floral motif in proud relief against a stippled and hand-chased background. Very reminiscent of Maciel pieces, the brooch is open-backed yet because it's made of thicker gauge silver sheet, very stable and impressive...

There can be no other design that epitomizes Mexican Deco better than Abraham Paz's "mask". One of the maestro's earliest creations, it can be found with Fred Davis's signature as well as with Paz's initials - like the ring at hand. Splendidly shaped, the "mask" is only minimally carved to denote the eyes, nose and mouth...

C. Molina is an early maestro about whom we don’t know much but his mastery of the art of cutwork is becoming all the more appreciated. His silver work is so elaborate and his jewelry – which does not surface very often – so monumental in proportions that it is creating a steady following among collectors and discerning “well dressers” alike. The double-dangle earrings I am presenting here are stupendous and I particularly love the addition of the mask at the top...

Beautiful Chinese Art Nouveau silver brooch in an open-backed repousse foliate design having a carved carnelian "button" bezel set at its center. The stone has interesting color variation and the carving shows a flower and a pear, I believe. Masterfully and carefully executed, this is a brooch of high quality indeed - just note that the carnelian is backed with silver and the piercing in the stone is also transferred to the backing...

Abraham Tobias is known for his stupendous repousse jewelry wrought in the Mexico City style associated with Matilde Poulat. His cuff bracelets are avidly collected for their bold and flawless repoussage and their, at times, stunning proportions. In the example at hand, a so-called “Aztec Rose” takes up almost the entire face of the bracelet and draws the eye immediately to its darkened recesses...

A quintessentially mod genre, I love "clamshell" Taxco jewelry them for their heft, their slick minimalism and the splash of unexpected color that usually emanates from their stones. Yet here it’s dark obsidian that anchors this piece in a classic combination that defies the passage of time. The bracelet has an inner circumference of 7″ (clasped) and its width varies between 1″ and 1/2″...
