Very distinctive and lovely, this vintage Carl Art leaf and vine brooch/pendant and matching earrings are a precious find to wear or add to your collection. The Carl Art Jewelry Company designed and made jewelry from 1936 - 1951.
The brooch is just over 1 3/4 inches tall and about 1 1/2 inches wide. The leaf is highly detailed with a matt finish in the middle and a gleaming border around the outside. There is a graceful vine curling over one corner and ending at the bottom that has five graduated sterling half domes. It has a well-working pin with a roll-over secure closure. The earrings are the same as the pin but 3/4 inch long and wide. The screw closures are secure and well working.
The back of the pin is stamped "Sterling" and C and A with an arrow through it. There is also a loop on the back so that it can be worn either as a pin or a pendant. The earrings have the same stamp on the end of their screw-backs. The set weighs 14 grams, light enough for comfort when worn. There is a very light patina that accents the lovely patterns. This set is beautifully made and in excellent to mint vintage condition.
