Christian Dior Glass Brooch 1960s
A very rare poured glass pink and gold flower brooch from fashion designer Christian Dior.
The brooch features pink glass petals in a gold tone, beaded frame with a faux pearl as the flower's centre. The stem is also gold in tone and is adorned with three molded leaves in varying shades of green.
The safety clasp is in good, working condition.
The brooch is in excellent vintage condition apart from some plating loss on the prongs that surround the light green leaf on the stem . There's also slight internal fracturing on the reverse of a couple of the glass petals which doesn't show through to the front and hasn't impacted the structural integrity of the piece.
Stamped Chr. Dior Germany 1965 on the back.
