Vintage Catherine Popesco French Pin Brooch Rhinestone Butterfly Metallic Enamel

This is a vintage designer brooch by Catherine Popesco. It is a very dark green enamel, almost a black with lovely Salmon enamel and gold designs.

Artist Catherine Popesco has a workshop in France where lovely jewelry pieces are created by hand using original stampings from the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods. The enamel is hand painted. The setting is called "Old Silver". This is a technique done by layering the silver over brass. Swarovski crystals are set by hand on the butterfly. Her designs are called "La Parisienne" in the U.S.A.. The name logo appears on the back of the pin. This pin features a very unique type of closure. Please see photo. I did a search and could not find another brooch with this unique closure.

It measures 2 1/2 inches x 2 inches. This is a nice size brooch. Many of her designs are much smaller in scale.

This brooch is from a wealthy and prominent Cincinnati family, whom I personally know. The brooch is in very good vintage condition. There are some slight wear marks only noticeable under magnification, as seen in the detail photo.

Your purchase will be beautifully and carefully wrapped for arrival.
