Simply stunning! We saw this brooch on one of our treasure hunts and couldn’t resist it. It reminds us of the incredible brooches designed by the French jewelry designer Pierre Sterlé or of the fine passemeterie jewelry so popular. This brooch in its gold tone metal is marked with Déposé and Made in France on its findings and made to resemble a spider chrysanthemum with its fascinating coiled wire fringe. It has a beautiful turquoise colored center setting which I personally believe to be a wonderful piece of glass as beautiful, in its own right, as real turquoise. It is completed with a double pronged clip with a heavy-duty spring mechanism as its fastener which is call a fur clip, although it would never be used on a fur as it would damage the pelt. This type of fastener was patented by Cartier in 1928 thus helping us date this brooch. A lot of information for a small treasure yet so beautiful. You must make it yours.
