This is a WONDERFUL Example of Modernist Silver jewelry. Abstract piece of "WEARABLE ART" is 3 Dimensional & made of Solid Silver. To me it is a study in contrasts.... hand crafted pin is Triangular with sharp angles and rounded edges. The completely hand tooled 'canvas' has a stippled/textured surface while the applied pieces of silver have a smooth/shiny glass-like finish. For added drama, there is a a pinky garnet color cabochon set into a bezel that is tilted on an angle.
American Studio Art pin is similar to Scandinavian Designer jewelry - pieces from Denmark, Sweden, Finland & Norway. This UNIQUE jewelry can be worn in virtually ANY direction/angle - use your imagination - it ALWAYS looks FABULOUS!
Modernist Studio piece probably dates to the 1970's ... MEASURES a Max. of ~ 1 3/4 x 1 1/4 Inches and WEIGHS Over 13 Grams! Unfortunately it is unmarked - no signature or hallmarks to credit the talented silversmith designer. It has been professionally tested & I GUARANTEE it to be Solid Silver.
Vintage Silver Pin is in VERY GOOD CONDITION! NO DINGS, DENTS, REPAIRS or Excessive Wear - retains Original FULLY Functional Locking Clasp, Pin Stem & Hinge securely mounted on back. Would make a WONDERFUL Gift or Addition to YOUR Mid Century Modernist, Designer Signed Silver or Studio Jewelry Collection!
