This is only the 2nd piece of Sterling Silver "SAUTEUR" jewelry by Renoir I have owned. The Renoir company of course is well known for their Superb Enameled Copper jewelry. This RARE floral pin is designed as a trio of Calla Lily Flowers on stems. The front of the pin has an almost mirror-like finish however; the reverse has a deliberately 'dull' finish.
The Shapely Pin ~ Brooch is BEAUTIFULLY crafted... MEASURES ~ 3 x 2 Inches and is Quite substantial - WEIGHS almost 18 Grams (Over 1/2 Troy Oz.). Retains FULLY Functional Locking Clasp, Hinge & Pin Stem. It is Clearly Marked in Capital Letters "Sterling Sauteur" and a Copyright "C" and "Renoir" on a tiny oval plaque on the reverse. You will find this DRAMATIC sculptural pin to be in VERY GOOD CONDITION! - has not been professionally buffed ~ polished & appears to have been crafted with a protective coating of lacquer to help retard tarnish. It is untouched ... direct from the estate of a 94 year old woman.
Don't miss out on the opportunity to own this FANTASTIC piece of Sterling Renoir jewelry... SUPERB Gift for a special someone!
