About

Chanel's appropriation of Byzantine and Renaissance forms continued throughout her career, often in the form of oversized cruciform brooches and pendants.

This one is set in bronze with deep amythest and pale sapphire pate de verre jelly stones, constructed in the studios of Goossens, Paris. The base for this weighty bronze brooch has an oversized "shepherds crook" pin fitting that allows it to double as a pendant. 3.25" x 2.5"

Signed: CHANEL
