1943: Very Rare " Toyokoki Brooch "
There are few pieces of Toyokoki jewelry out there (and they are not cheap)at the present but nothing of this caliber! I truly believe that this is a one of a kind piece.Of the few Toyokoki jewelry pieces available I have never seen two alike.Designed with four different sections and a built up three tiered application of silver with stars,leaves and various other designs.Personally I love the polished,dome shaped colored glass stones in deep hues of garnet,emerald green and royal blue resulting in a stained glass effect.When the light shines through the it is just breathtaking.In mint condition from front to back and measuring 4 3/4" long by 2 1/4" wide.Hallmarked with CPO giving it meaning that it was sold on a US military base in Japan during the occupation of Japan. These pieces were not made to be exported outside Japan.The previous owner claimed that the profile in the center of the brooch was a self portrait of the designer Toyokoki himself.Marked 950 silver.Just a truly unique and amazing work of art,craftsmanship and jewelry. When not being worn this piece truly should be displayed as a work of art.Enjoy!
