Rare Anemone Gold Brooch by Cartier Paris

Rare gold, cabochon emerald and diamond set Anemone clip brooch by Cartier Paris. The petals are realistically handworked by the goldsmith so as to imitate the petals of an Anemone flower. Double prong spring brooch fitting with a safety lock. For an almost identical pin from this series in the Cartier Museum Collection, see "Amazing Cartier" by Flammarion, page 121. The author describes the above as being in affinity with nature and often set with a central colored stone.
