You may not know the name Natacha Brooks but her unique jewelry is coveted by those who recognize quality in both design innovation and craftsmanship. She delivered on all counts, creating very unusual pieces in the 1940s - 1950s.

This rare mid 1940s Brooks sterling silver pin was inspired by the Scheherazade Ballet. It's a heavy solid sterling silver head of a legendary Arabic queen wearing a massive headdress. Silver dangles hang over her forehead and more silver and gemstone dangles hang from her collar. The headdress has a gold vermeil tint over the silver.

The pin measures 1 7/8 inches across by 3 inches high. It weighs 37.8 grams. The back has a secure rollover clasp. The oval hallmark is stamped...NATACHA BROOKS STERLING. Pin is in excellent condition.

Natacha Brooks introduced her first collection in 1944. During her career, she designed for other jewelry companies and was an anonymous designer for Barclay from 1938 until 1950. Brooks is acknowledged in the book "A Tribute to America Costume Jewelry 1935-1950" by Carla Ginelli Brunialti & Roberto Brunialti. We also found an excellent Brooks 1945 newspaper interview online...she was obviously a fascinating person.
