Lizard sapphire turquoise brooch


Lizard sapphire turquoise brooch in 18 karat (750) yellow gold. Brooch representing a lizard whose back is set with an alternating line of 11 sapphires and 10 turquoise cabochons. The rendering of the scales is precisely executed with chasing, giving the jewel a naturalistic look. Animal brooch from the 1960s.

Eagle head hallmark and hallmark of the Parisian silversmith Chevrier, Huot & Didelot (active between 1949 and 1961).

Dimensions: 2.8 x 6 cm

Note : An identical model, signed by Cartier, can be seen on Hervé Chassaing’s website. It is possible that the workshop that made this brooch did so for Cartier Paris, or proposed models that the company then signed.
Provenance: Former collection of a lapidary who worked in a subcontracting workshop for Cartier Paris.

Weight: 13.75 g
