Fantastic figural brooch from Pauline Rader features an expressive face in gold plated metal; it is trimmed with imitation coral and turquoise stones; the matching clip style earrings have tiny cabochons in the same imitation coral and turquoise stones. The brooch is large and measures just over 2 inches from top to bottom; the earrings each measure an inch long. A real collector's set!
Pauline Rader produced jewelry beginning in the early 1960's and continued for about 20 years; her pieces were mostly sold at boutiques and specialty stores. Since her jewelry was not mass-produced, it is much more difficult to find in the collectibles market. Her designs were highly imaginative and massive in size. Her jewelry often shows mystical Greek or Italian influences.
