I am a big fan of Kramer jewelry and have never seen one marked both Kramer and Made in Austria, this one is just spectacular. At almost 4 inches long this brooch can easily be worn vertically or horizontally. A starburst of color, with amazing art glass, faux gray pearls and brilliant rhinestones. Large navette-shaped rhinestones in fuchsia and emerald green, light sapphire, amethyst, fuchsia and aurora borealis rhinestones, all prong set. Gold tone spires shimmer with art glass beads in sapphires, greens, purples and pinkish reds, and crystals of amethyst, ruby red and olivine.
Size: 3.75 x 2 inches; Excellent Condition; Pre 1955.
Louis Kramer was one of the top American costume jewelry designers from the 20th century. His New York based company produced jewelry from 1943 until 1980. Kramer is well known for using only the finest Austrian crystal in his pieces. His designs were so exemplary that he was tapped by Christian Dior for his jewelry in the 1950s. Pieces can be signed Kramer, Kramer of New York and Christian Dior by Kramer.
