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.
