 SOLD - Thank you! 
Early Mexican Deco repousse silver necklace in a design closely associated with Matilde Poulat, I believe this piece to have been made in Mexico City where Matl worked as well and it bears the signature of a listed maker about whom we don't really know much more. Nicely made, with good sculpturality in the graduated rose links and a hefty, hand-wrought chain that helps adjust the necklace's length, this is a beautiful example of repoussage from the opening decades of the 20th c.. The necklace measures a generous 19 1/2" long (adjustable due to the hook-and-eye clasp) with the floral links part being 8 1/2" long and the width of the roses varying between 1 3/8" at center front and 3/4" for the smallest. Its width at the chain is 3/8" (at its widest) and it weighs 47.1 grams. It is signed with maker's intials "E&G" as well as "STERLING" and "MEXICO" (not as easily readable but there - see also Hougart, Little Book of Mexican Silver, p. 207) and dates in the 1930s-40s. In excellent vintage condition with nice sculptural quality in the carefully executed repoussage and good patina - a beautiful and early Matl-esque "rosas" necklace.
