Please read more about Peter Macchiarini in both of my books, "Modernist Jewelry, 1930-1960, The Wearable Art Movement" and "Form & Function, American Modernist Jewelry, 1940 - 1970."

I need help identifying a set (Large Clip/Pin, Bracelet, Earrings).From reading the list of Mystery Marks I found the meanings of the three-crowns mark and the S, but would anyone be able to tell me anything more about this bracelet? The ones I've seen on her beautiful early repousse pieces are impressed or stamped. Are the pieces with the scratched marks designs by Matilde Poulat that were produced later?I don't see a "Salas" mark on this piece and I thought the pieces made after 1960 would be marked "Salas" together with the other marks. On his more recent pieces he either uses a rectangular piece of silver soldered on the back with Matl in script and M REGIS (marca registrada - registered mark) followed by a number, MEXICO 925, MS-12 or he simply "scratches" on the back "Matl, Mex 925" He doesn't always scratch on the "MS-12" or "Salas". I know he wrote them because we were visiting with him at his home when he was marking pieces.From Thomas Mann, a very well known contemporary jeweler based in New Orleans, has been creating jewelry for about thirty years.He describes himself as "an artist working in the medium of jewelry and sculpture." He has won numerous awards for his jewelry and is featured in many books on modern jewelry including Art Jewelry Today by Dona Z. Margot van Voorhies Carr arrived in Mexico City in 1937.

I hope the descriptions don't sound to disappointing.
