TP-102 925 Mexico sterling is a mark of Matilde Eugenia Poulat and her nephew Richardo Salas ( an heir to Matilde's art).

Matl- Matilde Eugenia Poulat first started "Matl" in 1934 and continued designing some the most collectible Taxco silver until her death in 1960. Her designs for jewelry and religious figures were part of the new cultural vision among Mexico's intellectuals after the Revolution when they sought a new Mexican aesthetic. All Matl designs were executed by accomplished silversmiths under her exacting direction. After her death, her nephew, Ricardo Salas, continued the Matl-Salas line until her death in 2006.

RARE

The bracelet is marked McClelland Barclay on the open clasp link. The back is worn but the front is in very good condition. The plating is 14kt gold over brass and the paste stones are set in silver plated channel. The bracelet has Faux ruby sets that are of the Verneuil process of flame fusion of synthetic crystal making. These are very good faux ruby of pigeon blood red color. The depth of bracelet is almost 5/8" with width 3/4" x 7" long. Very collectable and almost impossible to find this vintage piece signed by the engraved signature of McClelland Barclay.

The name McClelland Barclay is one of the most respected names in costume jewelry. An artist, sculpture, and jewelry designer, he started in jewelry in the 1930s and he was killed in World War 11 in early 1943. From sometime in 1932 to 1938 he designed jewelry and commissioned different manufactures to produce his jewelry about 1935. Not just 1 but several and one of them being "Rice Weiner Co", who made most of his jewelry for him.

McClelland Barclay jewelry is marked that way in his own signature and engraved into the metal and not applied to disc.

His work is highly Art Deco and from the 1930s is much sought after because of his artistic design.

This tureen holds 4 quarts of liquid. It was made by the Meridan Britannia Company in 1886-1887.

All of the plating is still original. There is however, a few spots where, as shown in my picture, there is some loss of silver. A magnificent addition to any silver collection. The collar is 7/8" in diameter and is wonderfully chased.

This tureen measures 9 1/2" tall x 13 1/2" long (including handles) x 9" wide.

The original quadruple silver plate has achieved a warm, soft patina with virtually no wear. There are no dents.

The inside of this silverplate tureen is in excellent condition as you can see by my picture.

The silver plate is much brighter than shown in the photo, which is due to the lights.

The high relief design is outstanding and crisp.
