This sparkling dark Siam red rhinestone and marquis glass cabochon heart brooch, circa late 1950's, is a signed Coro piece. I had this same brooch about six years ago. The heart is rendered in brush textured gold tone, open cut with swirls and set with round rhinestones in Siam red aurora borealis and marquis shaped glass cabs, also in Siam red AB.
This fabulous figural heart brooch measures 2" inches tall X 1.75" inches at its widest point. The hallmark on the back was poorly struck, so the only thing visible is the copyright symbol...but I can accurately say this is a Coro heart, since I had the same one in the past, which was clearly signed. This one is in excellent condition, save for a tiny bit of wear to the gold tone on the side edges. What a great gift for Valentine's Day!
