A simply scrumptious art glass French brooch made by Louis Rousselet with a wonderful complimentary color combination of spikey poured glass sapphire blue glass beads set with Pate de Verre soft pink lily-like flowers and a nice rounded blue glass central bead, just French Fabulous!
It measures about 2 3/4" x 1 1/4" x 3/4" which is approximate as it's difficult to measure with all the spikes of glass. Typical trombone clasp to the reverse with his signature honeycomb brass like backing and stamped Made in France.
A bit of a heft as we would expect from art glass jewelry it is certainly not too heavy and very wearable. I could not find any chips or cracks or missing beads, a bit of verdigris to some of the wire, expected from a jewel of this age and some dust so it could use a light cleaning or rinse, which I will leave to the new owner (but of course I do not mind keeping it in my own jewelry box as I adore French jewelry!)
French in origin (well, obviously) and circa 1930-1940s.
