Vintage Chanel brooch pin with Gripoix glass faux emerald &pearls Baroque style
Beautiful Rare Vintage Chanel Brooch. Set with crystals/glass made by Gripoix - the French company who made the highest quality crystals to imitate diamonds and other real stones. Beautifully set with fine detail. Incl for Chanel and Dior, some were'couture' pieces. These pieces were never made in large numbers, some may be unique. The brooch is designed in Baroque style, with ornate gold wash (or gilded) frame, with some swirls and beading on metal, irregular'baroque' faux pearls and a large square glass imitating emerald in the centre. Size just over 6cm in height incl pearls, 4cm wide approx.

Green stone is 2cm square. The frame is embellished with sparkly diamond-like crystals. Central crystal's green colour is very beautiful and vivid. The brooch is stamped at the back with'Chanel'.

The pin looks original but it is vertical which is slightly unusual, though some Chanel pieces have diagonal pins in the 60s/80s. The hook of the pin is bent in and secure but I'm not entirely sure whether the hook/pin is original - they might be but please form your own opinion from photos.

The brooch has an imperfection which is reflected in starting price - there is a hairline (thin) crack across the green glass//crystal, and a tiny dent next to it to one side. The glass is very secure and doesn't wobble at all due to the strong frame, also it's not noticeable unless the light is shone through it or at a certain angle. In the evening light it's even less noticeable.

Otherwise all the stones are intact, the pearls are in good condition with minor wear - couple of marks on pearls as shown, but that would be the same with many real pearls and isn't obvious. The brooch is sparkly and crystals are clear and clean.
