This is a rare 1950s Marcel Boucher Betta (Siamese Fighting Fish) Fish brooch. It has the fluid lines and grace of a Boucher creation. Metallic enamel fills the textured scales and flowing fins. The goldtone pin has clear rhinestone eyes. This pin is not signed but has the style and exact form of Marcel Boucher. Therefore, we can say it is marked by the Boucher style. I found an example of the exact fish both front and back that was signed. The only deviation from the signed fish is the coloring. The other had orange, brown and yellow enameling and this one has white, teal and pink coloring. The back is textured and modeled exactly as this brooch.

Boucher was known for his birds, but made many types of fish including a beautiful goldfish similar to this one with the same metallic enameling. A exact black and white enameled fish was found in Inside the Jewelry Box, by Ann Pitman, p 177, marked with the numbers only of 4811. The online example I found was marked Marcel Boucher with the number 4877P. The "P" indicates that the pin was part of a set. There is Boucher jewelry that was unmarked, but this may have been unmarked because the rest of the set would have been.

Size: 2-1/4 inches long x 2 inches wide at the fins

Condition: Very good. Slight wear of gold on tip of nose, very hard to see with naked eye. Enamel in excellent shape. Pin and catch very good.
