This lovely Schreiner brooch is created from neutral black and clear stones, making it very pretty but also very versatile. Although unsigned, this brooch is instantly recognizable as a Schreiner creation. This is based upon the design which was repeated frequently using different stones and colorways. The back is the true signature Schreiner construction, utilizing open and closed settings, and the addition of a hook allowing the brooch to be worn as a pendant as well as a pin.
The pin measures 2-3/8 inches in diameter. The brooch is in good condition, however there are some issues; notably there are flea bites/small chips to the center round stone. There is also a surface scratch on one of the black oval stones. In addition there is some foil loss to the emerald shaped clear stone. The metal on the back exhibits some spotty wear. All this being noted the pin is still very beautiful when worn. The flaws are not noticeable unless under close inspection and do not detract when the piece is being worn.
