Vintage Celine Paris Brooch Gripoix Pate de Verre Stones
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a vintage brooch made for the Parisian luxury house of Celine. The setting is a gold toned metal that holds “pate de verre” Gripoix stones in colours of green, red and blue. The Maison Gripoix method involves melting glass directly onto the setting using a blowtorch - the work is exacting and requires many hours to execute. Gripoix is used only by high-end Parisian fashion houses as it is a very expensive technique. This brooch is stamped on the backside with “Celine”, the Celine logo, and “Made in France” as well as with the number 124. It measures 3 3/8” in width and 2 1/8” in height. It is in very good condition. Beautiful quality and striking colours - sure to be noticed!
