1960's Art Deco Design Brooch
Photos don't do justice to this beautiful brooch, it was the most difficult piece I've photographed in a long time. Mainly due to the intricate, 3 dimensional design, which is a masterpiece in construction. Dating to the 1950's -60's era it features channel set baguette rhinestones accented by small, round, clear, rhinestones. Though it's unsigned I am confident it is a designer piece; it's high quality components are the kind you see in Mazer or Boucher jewelry as well as Trifari, though most Trifari I've had like this was signed. Alfred Philippe, as well as the others, made many pieces that resembled fine diamonds, platinum and gold and this piece sure fits that description. The baguette stones are so elegant, long and slender, soooo beautiful! If you love the look of real in costume jewelry this brooch, which looks like platinum /white gold and diamonds, is a must have!
Please view all photos for best details, I was able to get the 3D design though it took days of trying and many, many, retakes. Good Grief, lol!
A wonderful pin to add to any Art Deco vintage jewelry collection
All stones are excellent! Brilliant clear! The entire piece is excellent, no issures to note
Nice large size measuring 3" across x approx. 1.5" long. Measures approx. 3.5" if using a soft tape to go over the curve. Stands a bit over 1/2" high.
