Footnotes

  • This brooch was once one of a pair and although unsigned comes with its original Cartier box which has an empty compartment for its sister brooch. Each brooch had three interchangeable bombé centres, set with sapphires, emeralds and citrines respectively. All that remains of the missing flower brooch is its sapphire and emerald stamens. Both emerald centres have been converted into earstuds.
