This vintage gold flower brooch from the late-1940s is one of several versions Marcel Boucher created with petals that open and close. This design is often referred to as Day to Night. With its gold-tone petals and stem, and a faux pearl adorned with diamanté in the center, this brooch closes with a roll-over safety clasp. Note that the bright areas on the petals are only camera reflections. This piece is charming! A perfect adornment for women who look best in warm colors.
