RESERVED FOR BELLE Vintage Fur Clip Rhinestone Marcel Boucher


Extremely Nice Fur Clip by Marcel Boucher.

This Fur Clip is a rich gold tone with a center "V" design accented on either side with clear chaton rhinestones and larger baquette rhinestones. The bottom is an open work fan shape that reminds me of a Peacock , the end of each row has a Chaton rhinestone.

The back of the clip is clearly marked MB with the Phrygian cap above. This symbol is a representation of an ancient helmet and symbol of the French revolution. see 2nd Photo Lower left. It is also stamped with the Design # 257778. The Phrygian cap & MB was used from 1937 - 1949. Design Pat Number dates this to 1948. It measures 1 7/8" wide, a bit over 1 1/2" tall.

Condition: The clip is bright, sharp and snaps close. I can find no wear to the back only light wear to the high relief at the end of the Fan tips.. hard to see without a loupe.

The Rhinestones are deeply set below the relief. The Baguette rhinestones are set higher. I can see only 3 stones that are turning.. they are set deep and not worth damaging this piece to change them out. One chaton is on the top left , it is darker but not to the point of changing. the other 2 are just dull and set in the bottom of the V shape.

Marcel Boucher was born in France where he trained with Cartier.,in 1930 moved to New York, in 1937 he opened his own business. Any collector of Boucher has priced around and knows the value.
