Fantastic 1940s/50s Atomic Age brooch of sterling silver with a warm rose gold wash.......it's so interplanetary! The center dome is studded with clear and sparking rhinestones. The bottom starburst is stationary but the top, including the dome, can spin around playfully––what a well designed piece! The gold wash is not perfect, there are slight differences in tone here and there (please use the zoom feature) but considering the pin's age of about 70 years........! And it's all about this wonderful design. The rose gold color is not as dark as in most of the photos.The back is stamped Ernest Steiner Original, Ingenue in script, and Sterling which has been tested. Diameter of the brooch is 2 inches and weight is 21.5 grams. The pin back is the roll over type and it works perfectly.
This wonderful and fun brooch is a reminder of the early space age days and hopes for interplanetary exploration....which we have achieved to a certain degree! This lovely piece will be well packed and wrapped in a pretty gift pouch.
Thank you for shopping a Miami Moon!
