This is a SUPERB Example of Modernist Silver jewelry. "WEARABLE ART" is 3 Dimensional & made of Sterling Silver. Its rounded edge trapezoid shape has a deliberately dull finish to the metal. Studio created accessory has COOL applied 'bars & dots' of sterling randomly arranged around the outer edge. Set in the center is a square shaped cabochon stone - I believe it is Sodalite (similar to Lapis).
American Studio Art pin has a BOLD style like Scandinavian Designer jewelry from Denmark, Sweden, Finland & Norway. Its CRISP Classic MOD design would be perfect with blue jeans or a night out on the town.
Modernist Studio piece probably dates to the 1980's and is CLEARLY Marked "STERLING" in addition to the signature of the silversmith ~ designer who created it - Audrey Schenk (difficult to read). MEASURES a Max. of ~ 1 7/8 Inches in BOTH directions and WEIGHS ~ 16 Grams - Over 1/2 Troy Oz.!
Vintage Sterling Silver & Stone 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. Has not been cleaned/polished recently - displays old patina that attests to its age.
Would make a WONDERFUL Gift or Addition to YOUR Mid Century Modernist, Designer Signed Silver or Studio Jewelry Collection!
