For your consideration is this wonderful modernistic brooch by Betty Cooke. Signed Cooke and done in brass. It is an interesting collectable piece. It is quite thick.

The pin measures 1 and 1/16 by 7/8 inches.

It is in great functioning condition. There is some type of pink residue on the back and sides...possibly removable with the right agent. Excess solder on back - not sure if repair or made this way. The front looks great with very minor light scratching. I cleaned it - you may want to give it a better cleaning.

Betty Cooke, born in Maryland, 5 May 1924, still a central component of her craft, produces jewelry with an unmistakable, signature style. Cooke received formal training in metal working from a local jeweler during her time at the Maryland Institute, College of Art. Upon graduation with a bachelor in fine arts in 1946 she was hired on by the institute to teach welding to World War II veterans returning home. Betty Cooke is a prolific jewelry artist. Over the years she has always maintained her integrity as a designer, and almost without exception her pieces are made completely by hand. To date she has been honored by the De Beers Diamonds Today Award, the Alumni Medal of Honor from the Maryland Institute, College of Art, and been featured in numerous exhibitions.
