Elegant 1950s French Gripoix and Verdant Green Enamel Delicate Floral Pin Brooch. Exquisitely crafted wire work brooch has poured pink glass flower petals and brilliantly enameled verdant green leaves. Has the look and feel of genuine jewels rather than costume. The pin in marked PAT PEND but the materials, construction and detail belie a French origin for the piece in terms of manufacture. May have been marketed and sold in the USA thus the pat pend detail. Pinback is also not European, so this is definitely a hybrid piece, possibly purchased as raw material and then finished with American details in the 50s. Excellent vintage condition. Approximately 2" wide and 1" tall...the pin is not huge in scale, but the look is so exquisite,, the impact is outsized to the piece's elegant scale.
