This beautiful set is signed Matisse with white enamel leaves on a copper necklace and matching earrings were made in the 1950's of copper links with a bright white enamel finish. This set is very hard to find. Both companies did jewelry with a Arts and Crafts look. The necklace measures 18 inches long and 3/4 inches wide. The clip earrings are 1-1/8 inches long and 3/4 inches wide. The necklace and clip earrings are in excellent shape with no chips or scratches on the white enameling. Its a very modernistic with the stylized links of copper and then white enamel leaves. Renoir who also manufactured Matisse was one of the leading companies to use copper for their jewelry design. Matisse mostly used enameling process to color up the copper material. The closing clasp works well and closes tight. This wonderful necklace and earrings will make a great addition to any fine costume jewelry collection
