Marcel Boucher was one of costume
jewelry’s most respected designers. He began by designing fine jewelry
for Cartier in New York City then moved into creating his own line in about 1937. Making jewelry with the marks "MB", "Boucher"
and "Marboux", his designs were fluid and detailed and his enamels have a
colorful translucent quality that
make them a particular favorite.

BOUCHER unsigned hand holding torch fur clip circa 1942. It is a hand holding torch of liberty with a
big pink faceted glass flame set in gold- and silver-tone, 3". It is marked only "patn
pend" but the patent is #131,798, Boucher, circa 1942, 3". There are
fleabites in the pink flame, barely visible and only under 5x magnification,
with and light finish wear on the gold tone arm. This can be worn as a
patriotic piece or solely for it’s beauty.

attributed but unsigned fish brooch in gold tone with a topaz colored
unfoiled rhinestone belly and clear rhinestone accents, 3" by 2". The
design is amazing with ruffled and overlapping fins and tail and a swirl
for an eye. It shows only slight traces of wear on the finish and the
clear stones are slightly hazy. I think this is circa 1940 and it is
Boucher patent number 139,674 from 1944.
MB BOUCHER Premiere Fleur brooch with blue molded glass and clear
rhinestone brooch, the single initial "D" on the back, 2-1/2" by 2-1/3",
circa 1940. In a very faint hand engraved numbers is "91-66-27", also on the
back. Like some other better jewelry from this era, the pin back opens only 45%
of the way, and it should not be forced. This glass line came as a
brooch and also a set of
fur clips, and then there’s also another ad for a more simple brooch. An
ad for a brooch from this group was run in "Mademoiselle Magazine" in
the March 1940 edition. Another
brooch in this series can be seen in the Deanna Cera book "Amazing Gems"
on page 125 where she dates it 1937.
