Vintage Coro pot metal enamel and rhinestone figural flower brooch is a patented Gene Verrecchio design, filed on January 30th, 1941 and issued on March 4th of the same year.

The design features a nosegay of two flower stalks, with brown enamel accenting their stems and green enamel on the furling leaves. The flowers themselves consist of trios of oval cut, prong-set pink rhinestones, cupped by sepals pavéd with tiny, clear rhinestones. The sweet bow tying the flower stems is pavéd with clear rhinestones as well.

The pin is stamped “Des. Pat. Pend.” in very faint lettering; if ever present, the Coro mark is no longer visible. Photo #7 shows Gene Verrecchio’s sketch of the design (Gene Verrecchio was head designer for Coro from 1933 to 1963).

Measuring 3 ¼” by 1 ¾”, the brooch is in very good condition, with all stones present and the enamelling and metal finish intact. There is slight yellowing to a few of the stones in the “bow”, and slight variance (apparently original to manufacture) in the pink color of the oval stones; in particular, the left bottom stone in the right “flower” seems a little paler in hue.
