Vintage classic De Mario gilded brass chain fringe and rhinestone floral brooch is being offered for your consideration. It is in excellent vintage condition with a big and bold presence in a relatively moderate size package, making it a very versatile brooch, one which would lend itself well to use as a pendant on a chain with the use of a chain converter!
Robert De Mario, the designer of this brooch is referred to as a disciple of Miriam Haskell in many reference books and although Haskell Jewelry denies that he ever worked for them, her influence on his construction & designs is undeniable. DeMario Jewelry (1945 – 1960) has never been plentiful in the market place and it is becoming more & more difficult to find pieces by this magnificent designer in good condition; it is always a coveted find for the collector and lover of fine quality costume jewelry alike!
The chain fringe line by De Mario was some of his most popular and is still some of his most collectible! The piece is signed, DeMario N.Y,, on the back and the ' C ' clasp closure function properly it measures 1 1/2 inches in diameter, very versatile. There is light gorgeous mellow aging of the 60 year old gilded brass only and under close or magnified inspection some light desirable peppering or a tiny nick in the original rhinestones may be observed, nothing in our opinion that detracts from their stunning appeal only that that affirms their age and authenticity. A timeless addition to your accessories wardrobe which will add a striking stand-alone statement with lasting appeal! Enjoy!! (H014b)
