Boucher Phrygian Cap Rhinestone Fur Clip Book Piece Comma Earrings

Details

Boucher Phrygian Cap Rhinestone Fur Clip Book Piece Comma Earrings marked with the Phrygian Cap logo for the best of Bouchers' creations and used on his earliest pieces. This phenomenal dress fur clip pin has the Phrygian Cap logo incised on the reverse, just above the "MB", along with the inventory number "2803" (issued 1949). The design is quintessential 1940s (Retro Period 1938-1950). Making jewelry with the marks "MB", "Boucher" and "Marboux", his designs were fluid and detailed and his enamels have a colorful soft iridescent quality that make them a particular favorite. The Phrygian Cap was registered in 1944 and used until 1949. The comma earrings are a book piece referenced in Julia C Carrol's Costume Jewelry 202, page 268. The earrings are marked as item number 2804 which dates these earrings to 1949.

As with some designers' jewelry, the older pieces are often the best. Marcel Boucher's early jewelry is extremely desirable.

Marcel Boucher (1937-1971) was one of costume jewelry's most respected designers. He began by designing fine jewelry in New York City for Cartier and moved into creating his own line in about 1937.

Marcel Boucher jewelry is "high-end" and can be tough to tell from the "real thing". Numbers on Boucher pieces are inventory or style numbers.

The dress fur clip brooch pin is made of an open work fluid design with a central silver-tone section that is loaded with pavé set, faceted, rhinestones which give considerable sparkle to the piece. These stones have been set into rhodium plated metal, a perfect backdrop that makes them absolutely brilliant. At the very end of the tail of the swirl is a larger set stone. Coordinating earrings are included.

Overall excellent condition with a few darkened stones on the pin and darkened stones on the earrings. The metal is in wonderful vintage condition. Pin measures 3" tall and 1 1/2" wide and is marked with MB and the phrygian cap as well as the inventory number 2803. Earrings measure 1 1/4" tall and 1" wide and are unmarked. Although there are darkened stones, I did rate these pieces in excellent vintage condition as the pieces are lovely and the metal is in simply wonderful condition for a piece of this age.

This jewelry comes from a dear friend and a truly exceptional lady. While having an antique shop, she has collected these fine designer pieces for the last 40 years and has an incredibly discerning eye for quality as well as unique and special pieces. The extensive nature of her collection has meant that she has not worn most pieces more than once. In all her years of extensive collecting, she had never seen a piece like this and that was so large.

It is my distinct pleasure that she has chosen to pass her extensive collection on to me. I am in the process of acquiring her complete collection and know that I will be keeping some special pieces for myself. I will also be offering some for sale and please know that with each piece comes a wonderful legacy of a very special lady that makes this jewelry all the more special.

There are additional antique and vintage brooches in the Brooches, Hatpins, and Pins as well as the Bakelite, Lucite, and Other Plastics Studio Categories.

There are also other antique and vintage costume and plastic jewelry (bakelite, lucite, celluloid, and figurals), collectibles, books, art, glass, china, kitchen, home decor, and retro pieces in the store.

The doll I received isn't the one from the picture. Only one flower on her hat and missing tags. For $100 I expect what I paid for. I am incredibly dissapointed and will not shop with seller again.

What a great seller. Took extra photos for me and emailed them. Very easy to communicate with, and I got exactly what I expected-a beautiful vintage dress for my son's wedding, that was in excellent condition.
