This lovely brooch in cast sterling silver depicts two sinuous fish with long tails entwined with a banner which reads "PISCES." The flowing, curvy lines make this pin very visually pleasing. Its Italianate design is characteristic; the maker, Guglielmo Cini, emigrated to the U. S. as a youth. He settled in New York and in time became perhaps the best domestic jewelry maker of the twentieth century. This pin is part of his very collectable Zodiac series. The marks are "sterling by Cini." The quality of design and workmanship are very high. The pin is 1 7/8" by 2 1/8" and weighs 18.8 grams. Wear it on a coat or sweater. This piece is ca. 1940-1960 and is in excellent original condition.
