Coco CHANEL 1930’s Gripoix Pearl Cross Pendant Brooch
Extremely Rare 1930’s Coco Chanel by Maison Gripoix poured glass and pearl cross pendant/brooch in very good condition.
EARLIEST CHANEL PIECES ARE NOT MARKED WITH THE MAKERS NAME. Pieces from 1921-1939 were made to complement Chanel's clothing. As a result, these extremely rare pieces were left unmarked. In 1939, due to WWII, The House of Chanel stopped operations and resumed in 1954, in her Parisian Boutique at 31 Rue Cambon. All hardware is original and the signature FRANCE is located on the reverse side. Historical jewelry made by Gripoix, especially pieces made for Chanel, are the objects of real cult value. They are collected, they are hunted down, they are sold at auction, and their prices have recently sky-rocketed.
