MATL sterling earrings of detailed doves on nests each with 3 dangles. There are tiny turquoise for the birds eyes, on the nest and on the drops. It is difficult to tell if the stones are turquoise, which Mexico has little, or dyed chalcedony or dyed howlite. Most people who buy MATL, clearly don't care what the stones are considering the prices they pay. These lovely doves have 3 segments and 1 7/8" tall and 1" wide. These post earrings are marked in etching pen Matl, MS12, Mexico 925. The use of MS12 means the earrings were made 1960 when Matilde Poulat died until her nephew, Ricardo Salas, who worked with his aunt for her whole career. Then Salas added his name to the markings. Excellent vintage condition.
