Striking Maltese cross design brooch features ruby red chatons in a gold plated setting. The brooch is quite substantial and dimensional; it sits almost an inch high! The setting has a twisted, rope design; it is signed on the reverse as shown HAR. Overall condition is fine with no issues.
The company HAR is best known for their fantasy series of cobras, dragons, and genies; their designs are bold and well made. Seldom does one encounter a piece that is not still in good condition. A married couple, Joseph Heibronner and Edith Levitt, founded the company in 1955 and made jewelry until about 1967.
