1960s Les Bernard mechanical flower brooch with moving petals. Measurements: 2-3/4 inch X 1-5/8 inches when open and 1-1/4 across when closed. Hard to find designer costume jewelry.
Very fun and perfect for your collection of the rare and unusual! This articulated brooch is really one for a designer costume jewelry collector or someone who is planning on writing a book.
The arched petals are encrusted with tiny faux pearls. Each petal can be moved individually. Your flower can be closed, partly open or in full bloom! The domed center is covered in the tiny faux pearls as well. The center hides the mechanics of the petals.
Construction is not only clever, it is SUPERB! This is a very, very strong brooch.
It is signed Les Bernard Inc. and Pat. Pending. A version of this pin is featured in not one, but two books about costume jewelry.
I find no damage or signs of wear. Minty condition! All metal is super shiny gold tone.
