Caroline's Jewelry with a Past is offering a mid-century Ed Levin handmade sterling silver brooch with a look of style, modernity and expression circa 1955. It is designed as a piece of modern art and resembles a stylized spider. It is hand hammered and wrought and an early piece of studio or artisan jewelry. The brooch has "Levin" + "Sterling" on the reverse. The piece is 3" tall X 1-3/4" wide (maximum dimensions). It has a secure safety clasp and weighs 11.6 grams.

Ed Levin (1921-2008) was an artist and jeweler who began his jewelry career in the late 1940s in New York City. He started "Ed Levin Jewelry" in New York City and then moved to Vermont in the 1960's. After 1968, his jewelry was made by production methods. Somewhat of a late comer to the avant garde New York jewelry art scene, his style is generally more subdued than many of his counterparts.

The silver content of this piece has been tested using standard accepted testing methods, such as acid testing. The silver is marked "Sterling".

When you own vintage handmade jewelry, you wear a design that is unique and represents the artist's vision. It is made by a skilled craftsman and can have features which are only found in this piece. The jewelry may exhibit the marks of the craftsman. It will not be perfect. The jewelry will show age appropriate tarnish, unless we state otherwise.
