Here's a beautiful abstract set signed by modernist designer Orb (Otto Robert Bates). This set dates from the late 40's when he was designing for Rebajes. The brooch bears his signature while the earrings are marked Rebajes.
The clip-on earrings are about 1 1/4 inches by 3/4 inch, and the brooch measures 3 3/4 inches by 1 1/2 inches. The set is in very good condition, only minor scratches which I wouldn't even bother buffing out.
The design looks a bit like an actor taking a dramatic bow at the end of a performance, but also reminds me of the Picasso sculpture in front of the Daley Center in Chicago.
A very unique find! Love the copper!
The old, the new, the beautiful, the rare, the best - unique finds to send you over the moon!
I apologize for my absence the next week - I will ship all purchases on the 19th in time for Christmas.
