This is a very large signed ART bow brooch. The frame finish is gunmetal. The ribbon is accented with various sizes, shapes and green hues rhinestones. Some stones do show foil loss on the reverse. The closure is a safety locking clasp soldered to the frame with a straight pin stem. This brooch is in fair condition due to the loss of foil in some stones. The stones are darker in color which does not make this issue to obvious. This is a heavier large piece. Size is 2 1/4 inches in width by 3 1/4 inches in length.
ART (also known as ModeArt) jewelry was founded by Arthur Pepper in New York City, NY in the 1940's. The ART trademark was used after 1955. The last pieces were produced in the early 1970's.
