Exceptional Vintage Peridot Green AB Rhinestone Molded Glass Leaves Brooch. This beauty has been in my personal collection for many years and I've never seen another like it. I believe it dates to the 1960s.
It features a large green cabochon surrounded by three by stunning molded glass leaves, 10 navettes (five pale jonquil yellow and five peridot), and six Aurora Borealis rounds. The leaves are veined and half clear, half frosted. Everything is prong-set in an large abstract floral motif measuring 2-1/8 inches by 1-5/8 inches.
The back is an unusual antiqued pewter tone with a roll-over clasp. The brooch is unsigned but its construction and stone quality remind me of Reg*ncy or Sh*rman jewelry. Condition is excellent.
