Gorgeous flower brooch is from the designer Alice Caviness and features iridescent crystals for the flower petals. This is a large and well made pin, and measures 4 inches in length by 1 1/2 wide. It is in excellent condition and signed on an oval cartouche on the back of the flower.
Ms. Caviness began her career in the fashion industry and like others before her (Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli, Nettie Rosenstein, Adele Simpson, Hattie Carnegie) she began manufacturing jewelry to compliment her fashions. She had her own jewelry factory and produced a wide variety of costume jewelry designs between the mid-1940's until about 1997.
