This is a one of a kind hand made Mid Century Modern artisan brooch depicting an abstract cicada insect in a mixed metal brooch of silver, copper and gold. The brooch is signed on the back with cojoined maker's initials ML The metal of the front body of the bug tests positive as sterling silver. The gold patch of the 'eye' tests at least 10K gold. The back is copper. The brooch has a long pin stem on the back with an old style rabbit eared roll over safety clasp. The silver body is slightly arched to elevate it above the copper base and give depth. Simple engraved lines and 2 rectangular cutouts give just enough definition to be able to 'see' the insect form. The silver also has a slight texture.

Size: The brooch measures 2.75" x 1". It weighs 11.4 gr.

Condition is good. Patina has been left intact on the back.

This is a highly skilled and very artistically rendered piece of jewelry, for someone who appreciates the abstract.
