Vintage Corsage Brooch

Cartier

18k gold corsage pin set with 54 brilliant cut diamonds, signed CARTIER, patent pending. ca. 1934.


Designed as a rectangular shaped centrepiece flanked by two geometrically shaped pieces set with diamonds. A special patented mechanism is used in the brooch, to allow it to hold a small bouquet of flowers or a selection of feathers. By pressing the two geometrical part together the flexible middle piece is forced upwards whereby a small opening is created to put a flower of other corsage material in. The mechanism is patented. 



Size: 8.3 x 2.2 cm Weight: 22.8 gram
