ONE OF A KIND Vintage 1970s Lee Barnes Peck Handmade Mixed Metals Brutalist Fish PENDANT - image 1 of 6

For sale here is a ONE OF A KIND and very rare vintage 1970s handmade mixed metals bronze with gold and silver electroplated brutalist modernist fish pendant by American metalsmith/sculptor Lee Barnes Peck of Illinois. Peck is well known for his incredible one of a kind brutalist jewelry, and he also received acclaim for his decorative objects including jewelry boxes and bowls. His work was included in the book, "Objects: USA" (1970), and in numerous exhibitions and gallery shows of the time. Along with Stanley Lechtzin, the artist was one of the foremost practitioners of electroplating as an art form of his era. This is a great example of his brutalist jewelry and objects in mixed metals! Would look great hung on a neckring, on a chain, or even on an informal black cord. The pendant is hand-fabricated in bronze and electroplated with sterling silver and two shades of gold over parts of the body of the fish and contrasted with a black oxidation in parts as well. I have three others from this fish series for sale in my store. Each are unique, one of a kind, and entirely hand-crafted! Measures 1-1/2" by 1-1/8" and weighs 0.3 ounce or roughly 9 grams total. Marked at back as shown, "Lee Peck". Excellent vintage condition with just fine light wear and tarnish as shown - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
