Schiaparelli Rhodium plated and art glass brooch and earring set, 1950s

About

This stylized set by Elsa Schiaparelli harks back to her enthusiasm for Surrealism. It is a lovely set in great condition, with a lively choice of coloured art glass cabochons. Elsa Schiaparelli was one of the most influential fashion designers of the 20th century. She worked in new and highly original forms, and her work with the Surrrealist artists such as Jean Cocteau, and Salvador Dali is highly prized. In jewellery, early collaborations with Jean Schlumberger and Jean Clement are some of her rarest and cherished designs. Alongside Coco Chanel, she was responsible for some of the greatest creations of the 20th century
