Marcel Boucher was born in France and came to New York City in the 1930's. Opening his own jewelry business in 1937, it operated until 1971.

This lovely brooch, circa 1937-1949, consists of a round shell design with four individual ribbons curled or trailing downward from within the shell. The shell holds six emerald cut, faux rubies and a six-portion cluster of pave diamond rhinestones. Within the curl of two ribbons are additional diamond rhinestones. The brooch measures 3" in length and 1 3/4" in width with safety clasp mechanism. Stamped on the tip of one ribbon "MB" for Marcel Boucher and the "Phrygian" cap, which is an ancient helmet and the symbol of the French revolution. Some collectors call this the "bird mark" or the "chicken mark". The piece is not marked "Sterling" or it is hidden and undetectable. The gold vermeil shows wear, which would be normal with age and use. The piece maintains all the original patina. Great vintage overall condition with bright sets and no damage.
