Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
This design, called “Étude,” was a popular motif for Renoir, and can be found in several different styles. These mid-century modern earrings are in very good vintage condition with some loss of finish on the back side, and a few tiny bits of enamel loss (lower edge of one), and lower edge of the curl of the other (perhaps during manufacture). Nothing troubling to my eye. They are simply marked “Matisse” and “©Renoir” on the clips, and are lacquered to prevent tarnish.
One resource states that the Renoir line of jewelry was an alternative type of adornment for the Beatnik generation who embraced the simplicity of copper and enamel versus the glitzy use of rhinestones so prevalent during this period. I really like the beautiful translucent enamel, and think they are very cool.
SIZE: 1-5/16”L x ¾”W
