Gorgeous vintage, brilliant red, figural fruit rhinestone brooch by Schreiner. Bold and sizable at 2-1/4 inches X 2 inches. Very 3-D and so sparkly.
Part of a series by Schreiner of fruit themed jewelry.
This piece has gunmetal colored metal gracefully shaped to hold a FULL ORB of sparkling red prong set rhinestones to represent a lip smackin' cherry. The orb is formed by completely covering it in brilliant, prong set, red rhinestones.
The stem is perfectly arched as intended. Most of these have the stem, wrinkled or bent out of shape. This is beautifully ORIGINAL!
The green navettes represent the leaves. They are also prong set.
Note: Warner made a similar brooch at about the same time. It however, is a half circle. This is a FULL ORB. This piece also has 6 "leaves" whereas, the Warner brooch has only 3 or 5 leaves.
The brooch must have been sold as part of parure wherein only one piece was signed with the Schreiner plaque. This is a guaranteed Schreiner piece. Everything is minty and perfectly aligned.
With a few clicks of your mouse you can see several on the net WITH the plaque in place, but sadly with wookie stems.
