This fanciful sterling silver brooch depicts "Scorpio," one of the signs of the Zodiac. The design is flowing and baroque, trademark elements of Cini's work. Guglielmo Cini emigrated to the U.S. from Italy during the early 20th century and settled in New York City. He developed into one of the foremost American Silversmiths. He designed a series of Zodiac inspired jewelry during the 1940's that was immensely popular. This Scorpio pin is signed Cini on the back; it is an original. This Scorpio is benign; his stinger is actually being swallowed by a fish. The pin measures 2" X 2 1/8" and weighs 17.6 grams. It is in excellent original condition and is around 50-75 years old.
