For sale here is a HUGE and rare vintage 1950s handmade sterling silver and moonstone 'boomerang' modernist brooch pin with matching clip earrings by top-tier mid century modernist silversmith Ed Wiener of New York city. A striking modernist design in extra large format that makes an incredible statement when worn! (A similar but smaller (2-1/4" by 3-3/4") version of this otherwise exact same pin is being sold at Wright Auctions by Mark McDonald estimated in the $2-3K range without the matching earrings! - see last photo a screengrab. ) This pin measures 4-3/8" across at furthest two points by 3", the earrings measure 1-7/8" by 1", and the set weighs 44.2 grams total. Marked "Ed Wiener Sterling" on one of the earrings, the other pieces aren't marked which wasn’t unusual at the time for sets of jewelry. (A smaller set of similar design with pearls was up at auction at Wright in Chicago in June of 2019 with one earring marked from the set, and was estimated at $3000-$5000.) Good quality moonstones with strong blue/white adularescence. Excellent vintage condition with just fine light wear and some 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.
