I bought these pendant/brooch and earrings a few weeks ago and I've just found the time to take pictures of them...
The pendant is made of gold-toned metal, glass cabochons and pearls. It is 4" long and signed 'Henry' at the back.
The earrings are a little over 1" long, ornate with turquoises and also signed at the back.
Henry (Henry Périchon, 1910-1971) was a jeweller based in Lyon (France). His creations were inspired by medieval times, Baroque and Antiquity and made of gold-plated metal, glass and cellulose acetate (or 'Talosel', which was developed by Line Vautrin who he worked with for a time).
I love the majesty of Henry's design, very ornate and pure at the same time...
