A fabulous gleaming copper pin and earrings set by Renoir, whose designs are amongst the best of vintage copper jewelry.
Quality and excellence of design and manufacture is evident in all their pieces.
This set is from their higher end Matisse line which included the use of enamel.
The leaf pin has a graceful spray of sculpted leaves with a second layer of three leaves enameled in a mottled pattern of brown and clear enamel.
The clear enamel over the copper gives the copper a softer glow, the splatter detail is brown.
The clip earrings have a smaller version of the spray with a plain satin finish copper under layer.
All three pieces are in excellent condition, no damage or visible wear, secure pin findings and clip backs.
Marked on the back of the earrings Renoir and Matisse on the pin.
The pin measures 2.25" by 1.75", the clip earrings are 1.25" by 7/8".
A wonderful example of Renoir Matisse copper jewelry c1950s.
