Matisse Green 'Freeform' Brooch &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp; Earring Set - SOLD
This is a gorgeous vintage Matisse 'Freeform' brooch and earring set in a rich green colour.
The brooch and earrings are made from copper which has then been enameled in green which shades to black towards the right, and the depth of colour and the enamelling is a good example of the naturalistic style which Matisse jewellery was famous for.
The 'Freeform' design is enhanced by copper studs and curving copper lassos' acheiving the space-age style.
The back of the brooch is signed with the Matisse signiture behind the back pin and both of the earrings are signed on the metal clasps, indicating that it was only made for the Matisse division of the company. The set can be dated between 1952 and 1954 as it bears the same geometric script used for the Renoir pieces, but does not have the © mark used on all pieces after 1954.
The brooch clasp also has a security roll over to ensure safty whilst wearing such a lovely piece.
Very good vintage condition.
