For your consideration - a Matisse Renoir demi parure called Leaflet. The set consists of a large brooch and clip on earrings. It is a classic Matisse Renoir Design.

I discovered Mid-Century enameled copper about ten years ago. I love its modern vibe and fascinating color ranges. My collection is brimming over, so it's time to share some of my favorite sets and pieces with you!

First let me give you some backstory so you can share the history of this beautiful set with the many admirers your copper is sure to get!

Renoir of California was founded in 1946 by Jerry Fels. They produced copper and sterling silver jewelry until about 1964. The Matisse "mark " was reserved for their amazing enameled pieces which they began producing in the early 1950s.

The name of this design is Leaflet. It is/was a popular Matisse pattern. This set has beautiful gold enameling which shades to black and is accented with white dots. Both the brooch and earrings are signed. The earrings are clip-on and measure 1.25" x 3/8". The brooch closes with a secure rollover clasp and measures 3.25" x 1 3/8". As you can tell from the photos the condition is near mint. The exposed copper has an even patina and shines beautifully.

Enjoy! If this set is for someone special in your life let me know and I will gift wrap it for you.
