Beautiful Vintage Dome Pin with Cabochon Art Glass Center.
Since collecting Schreiner's large high dome oval pins I was attracted to this pink and ruby red rhinestone pin. The pin is not signed but is beautifully constructed pin with design elements typical of Schreiner Ruffle Pins. The large oval shape measuring 2-5/8" across x 2-1/4" top to bottom. The 5/8" wide double row of alternating pink round rhinestones and ruby red baguettes all prong set.
The large center art glass cabochon measures just over 1-1/2" wide x 1-1/4" across, held in place by 4 gold tone prongs with a unique crown shape. One photo of the 20mm profile picture is similar to Schreiner pins. There is also a similarity to Juliana DeLizza & Elster jewelry shown in Ann Pitman's outstanding book on Juliana Jewelry pages 18 through 27 featuring art glass center cabochons that are stippled and splattererd in the same artistic manner. Also the pin has the same puddling seen on the back of Juliana jewelry. There is also a photo on page 21 showing the open back of a Juliana splattered & stippled pin with the same oval frame.
Regardless of who made this pin, Schreiner, Juliana D&E or an unknown name, it is solid and heavy, bold and dramatic. It is especially spectacular worn on deep reds, purple or black clothing.
