Brooch & Earrings--RESERVED FOR SAMUEL--Fine "Gripoix" Lampworked Glass in Brass Circa 1950
This lovely set exemplifies the technique of lamp-working glass into filigree wire; it is generically called "gripoix" but I have no way of knowing if this a Madame Gripoix piece. I do not think the House of Gripoix had a patent on this style of manufacture, but I know it is not "poured" or "molded" (pate de verre) glass. It was melted by torch into the framework. It is in excellent condition in shade of water--blue and green. The brooch is 2 & 1/2" at the widest. Earrings are 1 & 1/4". Quite unusual.
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: blue/green, Size: 2 & 1/2 inches; earrings 1 & 1/4 by 3/4 inches
