Pair Of Airplane Brooches, 1930s
By the end of the 1920s, flying had become a popular sport among rival daredevils in Europe and America as well as a fascination for the general public. Flying clubs and air shows abounded. Cartier designed these diamond novelty brooches in the shape of planes in the 1930s to appeal to women with pilots on their minds.
