Stunning Original Matisse Necklace & Earrings Set - Pre 1958
Every now and again something comes along that is just so special, and this gorgeous necklace with matching earrings by MATISSE fits the bill. It is signed MATISSE and this signature dates the set between 1952 and 1958. The company was in existence in America until 1964 but the signature changed during its later period. The design of these pieces was unique and were highly sought after at that time by the film stars of the day. They were very reflective of the Arts and Craft Movement and were looked upon as miniature pieces of sculptural art in a combination of copper and other mediums. This set is a combination of copper and what could be described as segments that resemble pink hundreds and thousands set in resin - so unique! Width of the pieces is approx 2cms and the total length is 42cms including an adjustable 9cm extension chain.
In wonderful vintage condition. The matching earrings are clip on and measure a little over 2cms across. I LOVE THIS SET, AND ANYONE WHO APPRECIATES VINTAGE AND THE UNUSUAL WILL BE PROUD TO OWN IT.
