This brooch is easily recognizable as one of Schreiner's dimensionally designed masterpieces - one he created in numerous colors and materials. This one is particularly appealing due to the use of carnelian and sapphire colored stones and faux pearls. The Chanel-type color way is perfect for a suit or dress and the addition of a pearl necklace and earrings would make this a very sophisticated ensemble.
The brooch measures 2-1/4 inches in diameter and has a depth of 1-1/2 inches. The large center stone is deep blue and measures 1-1/8 inches in diameter. All stones are present and in excellent condition. There is some discoloration to two small areas on the back of the brooch. The piece is signed "Schreiner New York" in a plaque on the back.
