Coro produced the Vendome line from 1944 - 1979. Named for a city in France, Vendome is associated with high-end Coro designs.
This lovely Vendome brooch is stunning. The brooch consists of two rows of cut crystal discs forming the base, to which is mounted a large, round faux pearl surrounded by a row of eight somewhat smaller size pearls with filigree gold-tone end-caps. The brooch measures 2" across with filigree gold-tone back and safety clasp mechanism. It is stamped "Vendome" within an oval cartouche. Most marked pieces were made after 1953. The brooch is in excellent condition with only one small blemish on one of the smaller pearls. (see photos)
