Matisse Renoir Vintage Copper and Enamel Brooch Mid Century Modern Leaf Pin

Bitchin Retro


This vintage Matisse Renoir brooch is featured in Burkholz & Kaplan's "Copper Art Jewelry" on page 85. Simply titled "leaf" in the book, this piece showcases some of the best techniques that Matisse was known for - beautiful copper, rich enameling and unexpected details like the copper galls or bumps on the leaf, just as is found in nature. The copper swirl positioned where one would have expected a stem is a clever contemporary mid century touch. This brooch is also featured in Judith Miller's book "Costume Jewelry."

2 3/8 width x 2 1/4" wide.

Vintage jewelry is rarely perfect. We will do our best to note any obvious flaws, but flea bites, and small scratches are to be expected. Please view all photos with zoom to see characteristics of this listing, and note the measurements provided, as we use a telephoto lens to show as much visual detail as we can, and this may enhance size perception. We would be happy to answer any questions, or provide additional photos. 

This brooch is in excellent vintage condition.
