Boucher Pansy Flower Rock Crystal Brooch
A figural representation of a delicate pansy flower is realized in the form of a Boucher signed brooch. Carefully carved from rock crystal, the fragile-appearing flower with fine details sports a centered brilliant cut diamond of about .08 carats. The image is superbly modeled and carved with undulating waves in simulation of the fluid movement of petals fluttering from the passage of a gentle breeze. The reverse reveals the 18k yellow gold brooch fittings. If so desired a bale could be added enabling the piece to be worn as a pendant.

Historical Notes: Working in France in the early 1920s Marcel Boucher joined the House of Cartier. He was transferred to New York around 1923 and continued there until the 1929 Crash. He then did freelance work for firms such as the Mazer Brothers and in 1937 he created his own line. Although Boucher passed away in 1965, the design house continued until the early 1970s under the auspices of his wife, Sandra who had designed jewelry for Harry Winston and Tiffany & Co.
