Coco Chanel Lion Crest: Goossens

About

Themes and variation. The Chanel double lion brooch was also made as a single lion brooch, no doubt inspired by her time in the UK (and her astrological sign). Lagerfeld even paid homage to Chanel's Leo leanings by constructing a MASSIVE lion sculpture (based on a bronze lion in her apt) in the Grand Palais for the Haute Couture F/W 10/11 presentation (youtube it). This supersized lion clutched a massive pearl from which the Kaiser exited to take his bows. Pretty Cool. Please also see double lion brooch and belt in this selection. Signed: CHANEL. Bronze brooch executed by Goossens. Circa 1960s 2" x 1.5"
