Pearl & Emerald Glass Bead French 1950s Brooch
2 7/8" x 1 5/8"
Very good (the back of 1 pearl is peeling)
"MADE IN FRANCE"
Glass pearls and emerald-green-blown-glass beads are hand-wired onto gilt metal in this 1950s French brooch with a trombone clasp. This beautiful three-dimensional piece is in the style of Louis Rousselet. Note that his work was usually signed only with a paper hang tag, so most of his surviving pieces remain unsigned. This spectacular brooch is right for day or evening wear. For a unique look, how about wearing this piece on a wedding gown?
