This extra large brooch is nothing short of phenomenal and a true collector's piece. From the House of Gripoix, renowned for the beautiful glass components they made for CHANEL, comes this gorgeous brooch featuring cranberry red poured glass, large teardrop shaped simulated pearls and clear rhinestone accents. Has a large hook so it can be worn as a pendant on a neck chain or strand of beads as well as a pin. It is marked "Gripoix Paris" on the back. Measures 3 1/4" across but seems even larger due to the ruffled construction around the edges which adds dimension. Condition is excellent with only very minor scratching to the round glass in the center. Other than that, it's a real showstopper and certainly on par with the finest pieces of Chanel and other couture jewelry we've offered for sale. This piece appears in “Warman’s Costume Jewelry” by Pamela Y. Wiggins (Krause, 2014) on p. 211. It was purchased new directly from Gripoix at market in Paris around 2005.
