This beautiful vintage brooch was designed by ART and features a gold-tone seashell. It is quite large, measuring 2 ½" x 1 ½". The clasp is a simple `c' closure and in fine working order. The brooch is in very good condition, with the front near perfect and minor oxidization on the back as is visible in the photographs. The brooch is signed `ART' with the copyright symbol on the back. ART costume jewelry company was founded by Arthur Pepper in New York in the 1940s. Due to the copyright symbol, we date this piece post 1955.
