Beautiful red enamel on copper necklace. Geometric design with rectangular links in varied lengths that hang from a band of horizontal copper links. Fold-over clasp. Matisse, inspired by the poplar 1950s collar style, named this design Peter Pan.

Matisse was a enamel on copper line by Renoir, one of the most famous makers of copper jewelry. Founded in 1946 the company was originally named Renoir of Hollywood, named for where the company was located. The company’s marks went through several additional iterations including Renoir of California, 1948; Hand Made Renoir of California 1952-1954, and finally just Renoir. Matisse jewelry was introduced in 1952. About the same time, a sterling silver line was also introduced called Sauteur. Renoir closed in 1964.
