    This was an as-is purchase many years ago. The white enamel on copper looks like a 1950's car grille! Originally a necklace. I found a reprint of mid 50's Vogue advertisement in my research book but not sure if it's okay to copy the image. Shows this necklace and earrings. "vivid enamels against the soft glow of copper.... Flamingo necklace $5, earrings $2.50 plus tax. At fine stores everywhere....Los Angeles. New York, Chicago, San Francisco"

    This was another popular Matisse design, available in other colors and without enamel.

    Here's another good online research link about Renoir and Matisse companies:

      Thanks Nicefice - I don't know vintage cars styles very well other than going to car shows here at Seal Beach and Long Beach, CA and enjoying them. Same time frame though - mid to late 1950's!

      Thank you Bonnie, Roy and Scott for your loves.

      Wow...Now I know why I've never seen any of this before...you have it all ;) Amazing I bet that all of your pieces are so cute on too.

      Ha ha my friend Share - I don't have it all, just a bunch of copper that I've been collecting for 30 years :-) all around the country - mostly Midwest, but also when I lived in Florida and since 1987 here in So Cal. I have always looked for copper jewelry....
    5. valentino97 valentino97, 4 years ago
      Share - I have displayed all my copper that way. An entire hallway of copper necklaces, link bracelets and cuffs in a shadowboxes and also on cork board. LOL - have you been here? It seems like you have!! But now I'm documenting my collection and taking everything down. I have to downsize. :)

      Phil - is it okay to do that? If it was on a website I would, but copying it out of someone's book? I'll see if I can find it online. I don't have any 1950's Vogue magazines around here darn it!

      Thank you Ken - I love this set too! Hope to find an original necklace someday in my price range, I'm sure I will. I think Star Trek copied their badge from the earrings :-).

      Thank you friends for all the loves on this as-is Matisse Flamingo set: Zilla, Karen, Kevin, Hel, Flea, Mike, Bijou, Aura, Thomas, Melanie, Vintage, Judy, Kyra, Bey, Ted, Rick, One Good and Peggy! - :) Mary
