A gorgeous, very special vintage Mexican silver brooch * pin by Matilde PoulatMexico City, ca. 1940s. We often think to Matl’s beloved dove designs when we hear her name. However, she did explore other other organic forms to marvelous effect. Here we see her masterful talent and creativity to the seahorse.This wonderful Matl treasure successfully incorporates all of her most beloved construction techniques: Repousse at the outer body, head and tail; etching details creating the irresistible countenance of the seahorse; silver embellishments along the tail; and jeweled adornments ~ this time richly used in turquoise and coral. The piece is correctly hallmarked as shown. It is in fine vintage condition and stands 6.5 cm tall. A joyful piece to wear or to dis[lay with the assistance of a micro-easel.
