About

A French Mid-20th Century 18 karat gold “Taureau” brooch with diamonds and onyx by Van Cleef & Arpels. The brooch has 22 round-cut diamonds with an approximate total weight of .50 carats, an onyx cabochon eye. The whimsical bull was from the VCA ‘La Boutique’ collection, first introduced in 1954. Circa 1964. “This brilliant collection of whimsically cartoonish animal clips charmed new customers with their playful expressions and quirky compositions. Still highly detailed and made of precious metal and gemstones, the animated brooches made for great gifts and, because they were a bit more affordable than the Maison’s typically pricey pieces, more people could indulge in these adorable animals. As they added more animals to the collection each year, customers soon found the need to collect these curious creatures, turning them into one of jewelry’s beloved collector’s items.” From “Jewelry In Focus Curious Creatures Of Van Cleef & Arpels La Boutique” “Jewels Du Jour” by Natalie Bos, jewelry blog posted on September 1, 2012. Similar pictured in Van Cleef & Arpels The Art of High Jewelry, by Evelyne Possémé (editor), Les Arts Decoratifs, 2013, pages 194-195. Signed, “Van Cleef & Arpels 12690”750 French contol mark Makers mark. (MG #17054)
