BOIVIN

Butterfly brooch

Reference : 8307



This jewel arrived on the market without having been hallmarked at the time of its manufacture. It must be said that in the midst of the war we can understand that the regulations were not followed to the letter. The warranty department therefore compensated for the lack of a hallmark by affixing, before it goes on sale, the "Owl" hallmark for 18k 750 / °° gold and the "Mascaron" for platinum. It is interesting to note that the "Owl" carries as "different" the number 75 which is the one reserved for Paris.
