A little about the designer: Marcel Boucher (pronounced BOO SHAY) came to the United States from Paris to work with Cartier making fine jewelry in around 1920. He left Cartier to work with the Mazer Brothers and then in 1937 opened his own business.Boucher jewelry like this brooch listing often have a layered 3-D construction with intricate patterns and designs. It was made with quality stones and materials which have maintained their integrity making Boucher extremely collectible. The majority of my items are vintage therefore some may show signs of wear. Anything noticeable I will always do my best to mention.
