A great vintage signed sterling pin by Coro from their Norseland* line of sterling jewelry.
Coro's Norseland line was inspired by the great Scandinavian designers of the period.
This piece is a wonderful rendition of a Georg Jensen design.
The pin has a crisp repousse design with high relief of the mythological flying horse Pegasus*.
The graceful creature is framed with raised curls and a single tulip on the right side, the darkened background has a soft texture.
The oval pin is domed, it has a beautiful soft patina.
Very well made and in excellent quality and condition, very clean, no damage and minimal wear, safety catch is secure.
Measures 2.75" by 1&7/8" and weighs a solid 32 grams.
The back is marked with Coro Sterling, Genuine Norseland with the Viking Ship, and REG. U.S. PAT. OFF. mark.
A beautiful vintage designer brooch from Coro's best line of sterling jewelry.
