History: Marcel Boucher was one of the most talented designers and manufacturers of American costume jewelry in the 20th century. His jewelry was notable from the very beginning due to the excellent design and high-quality materials. It was commonly mistaken for precious jewelry. 

Born in Paris, Marcel Boucher worked as a jewelry designer for Cartier, who brought him to the United States. In the 1930s., he took a job with Mazer Bros., where he worked until he founded his own company in 1937. Boucher made a name for himself creating bold, imaginative, enamelled pieces that were individual works of art, with brooches shaped like fruits, animals, and human figures. In particular, collectors covet for his fantasy bird pieces from the 1940s. Boucher items, which are usually signed, can be roughly dated based on their inventory number and mark. In 1944, he changed the company to Marcel Boucher Ltd. to Marcel Boucher & Cie. Early pieces may be marked "Marboux" or with his initials in a cartouche. "MB Sterling"was used between 1942 and 1944.  Pieces made between 1944 and 1949 may be marked with a Phrygian cap above his initials.  Later pieces are marked "Marcel Boucher" or "Boucher". After 1955 the copyright symbol appears above his name. When Marcel Boucher dies in 1965, his wife Sandra, took over the company. In 1972, the company became a subsidiary of watchmaker Dovorn Industries. 

Daffodils are some of the first flowers we see in springtime and are a great indicator that winter is over. Because of this, they are seen to represent rebirth and new beginnings.

The word “narcissus” is derived from the Greek word narke, meaning numbness (also the root of the word narcotic); the flower may have been named thus because of the intoxicating fragrance of some species.
