Art Deco Spiral Brooch Signed Boucher features clear pave' set rhinestones and baguette stones set in a 3 dimensional "whirlpool, spiral, vortex design. Very cool! Silver plated metal. Made in 1950 according to company inventory info because there is no copyright symbol next to the signature. However, "Boucher Inventory Numbers dates are approximate, as designs could have been assigned numbers, but not produced until a future time". But in this case it's backwards as the 5579 is supposed to be AFTER 1955 and this pin, because it has no copyright mark was supposed to have been made pre 1955.
But if you look at the last date of 1950 it shows inventory numbers of 3001 - 4500.
I did find one mark like the one on my brooch which is seen in the group photo below
More on the marks:
Boucher 3033” from 1950.
“Boucher” mark was used from 1950-1955
I think it has the more distinct look of a piece from 1950. Has a more Art Deco to Retro look.
Brooch is in very good vintage condition with sparkling clear beautiful stones. The silver plated finish shows light scratches on the back.This is normal for a piece this old and does not affect the beauty of the piece (in my opinion)
Measures approx. 2" across x approx. 1~3/8" long
