18kt Gold and Enamel Snail Brooch, Cartier

 
Auction: Fine Jewelry - 2550B Location: Boston Date / Time: June 14, 2011 10:00AM

Description:

18kt Gold and Enamel Snail Brooch, Cartier, designed with a green enamel shell, full-cut diamond melee accents, no. 13706, lg. 2 1/2 in., signed.
Estimate $1,500-2,000

c. 1970s and probably New York. Overall good. A couple of very minor "bruises" to enamel at bottom of shell, not obtrusive. The numbers are on the base of the snail itself, but the signature is on the catch to the pinstem.
