Vintage Retro Modern Mid Century Modernist Sterling Silver Marcasite Amethyst Citrine Peridot Basket of Flowers Pin Brooch
Dating to the 1970s/1980s or so, may I offer this silver pin in the shape of a Basket of Flowers. The basket is filled with a mass of florals with faceted marcasite petals and semi-precious stone centers - amethyst, citrine and peridot (tested). Safety catch at the back to hold the pinstem in place. Manufactured by Murray Shapiro, Heirloom Jewelry, under the 73 VINTAGE line. Heirloom 73 moved from New York to Freehold, N.J. in late 1987 and changed its name to the “Jenna Nicole Collection Ltd. Inc”. In 1998 the company name changed again to “Jenna Nicole Inc.” Trademark information has disappeared and it is thought that the company "went under" in 1990.
