Vintage Louis Rousselet Jewellery
Rousselet was a French jewellery designer, active in the trade from the early 1900s to approximately 1970. He trained from a very young age and learned the art of glass bead making - these beads feature in all his jewellery creations. Most often unsigned, Rousselet pieces can be identified through a few signature elements, like the fine glasswork, the disctinctive filigree or mesh backings and the the trombone clasp found on his brooches. A few pieces were signed 'LR', many were stamped 'Made in France'.
