About

Delicate example of Louis Rousselet's masterful treatment of pate de verre techniques as seen in the turquoise glass pistils and signature pearls of this period brooch. 1930's France. Excellent condition. 1.5" x 3" long. Louis Rousselet handmade opaline,ruby, and faux pearl flower form pate de verre brooch. Louis Rousselet (1892-1980) was born in Paris and apprenticed at the tender age of eight to M. Rousseau to master the technique of lamp-work beads. "Before World War I, it was common practice to apprentice young children to a trade. Families needed as many working members as possible," reports Denise Rousselet, Louis' daughter. In 1922, in Menilmontant, Louis began manufacturing glass and Galalith beads as well as imitation pearls (glass beads coated on the outside with essence d'Orient, a fish scale compound). Very soon his firm was a major source of handmade beads worldwide, employing nearly 800 workers over the years. The firm also produced models for Chanel and other couturiers.
