Marvel in the mastery of mid century modern Marcel Boucher. Textured gold tone ribbon like tendrils dotted with simulated green jade glass cabochons entwine in this '60s vintage brooch from a designer, formerly of Cartier in France and Mazer Brothers in New York.
Marcel Boucher opened his shop in 1937. After his death in 1965, wife Sandra continued the business until 1971. While many Boucher designs focus on fine jewelry inspired classics, the company's later work crosses over into mid century modernism.
The brooch presented, an example of this later work circa 1961, measures approximately 2 1/2 inches x 2 1/4 inches with a 1/2 inch maximum profile. Green glass cabs are about 2 millimeters. Weight of the brooch is approximately 26 grams.
Condition is excellent / pristine vintage. All components original and intact. All green glass cabochons retain color and luster. No damaged or off stones. All gold tone finish intact, front and back. No dents or improper bends to metal components. Pin mechanism secure. Extremely clean. No damage / no repairs. Pristine vintage.
Reverse of the brooch is signed: "BOUCHER" with copyright symbol preceding. There is also a design / inventory stamp of "7979P" indicating the pin was designed circa 1960-1961.
