Nettie Rosenstein Sterling Silver Pipe Brooch & Earrings

The design of this circa 1940's Nettie Rosenstein set is of elaborately decorated ceremonial pipes, complete with cords, tassels, and clear rhinestones accents. Many cultures had versions of ceremonial pipes; this set has a Persian look to my eye. Gorgeous!

Condition: The rosy gold wash is in excellent condition, with minor vintage wear. One rhinestone is missing at the top of one of the earrings. The stones have mellowed but none is “dead”.

Measurements: The brooch measures 3 ¼ by 3 ¼ inches (8.3 by 8.3 cm) from the top of the stem to the end of the tassel. The earrings measure 1 5/8 by 1 ¾ inches (4.1 by 4.4 cm).

Marks: The brooch is signed Sterling above "Nettie Rosenstein" in a rectangular cartouche. The earrings are unmarked.

References: The brooch appears in a 1946 Harper's Bazaar advertisement shown on page 245 of Ann Mitchell Pitman's "Inside the Jewelry Box". Julia C. Carroll says in her “Costume Jewelry 202”, “All Rosenstein jewelry is hard to find, but the sterling examples are especially rare.”
