According to Billie Hougart in Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks (Color House Graphics, Michigan; 2013), p. 150, Matilde Poulat studied at San Carlos Academy of Art along with Diego Rivera. She was very much a part of the silver revival in the arts that occurred after the Mexican Revolution. She opened her shop in 1934. After her death in 1960, the shop was continued by her nephew Ricardo Salas until his death in 2006.
I think that Matilde's designs incorporate more of the earlier, traditional Mexican designs than many of her fellow artists. There is a clear continuity of tradition in these designs.
