Vintage Marcel Boucher "Sonia" Ballerina Pin
A vintage Marcel Boucher "Sonia" ballerina pin. This vintage pin consists of a gold-tone metal ballerina dancing in a silver-tone metal tutu encrusted with clear multi-faceted round rhinestones in her bodice and along the entire perimeter of her skirt. Her toe is pointed and she's in an attitude position balancing on one leg which makes her quite the athlete. She is marked on the back MB in a phrygian cap along with the design patent 154095 and 2977 measuring approx. 2" in diameter. This design patent number helps date this pin no earlier than 1949. It is also a book piece as shown on page 71 of American Costume Jewelry Vol I by Brunialti.
