This pair of scatter pins is a perfect illustration of Schreiner's mastery of color. Even in their neutral palette, Schreiner soared above other designers by combining unusual colors in rich, complementary hues.
The navettes forming the points of the stars are in beautiful shades of brown, with two points in a dark mink tone and three points in a light, clear taupe. The round rhinestones between the points and those in the center cluster are in the lightest shade of clear gray.
As always with Schreiner, the rhinestones are superior quality. All stones are open-backed and unfoiled, and all are set with their points up, including the navettes.
These brooches are very dimensional. The upper tier in the center is a round, highly domed cluster of tiny prong-set stones. The stones in the bottom tier are all in crimped, or pie-crust, settings with dog-tooth prongs.
The brooches are 1 3/8 inches round. I've always worn them together as scatter pins, but they would also be lovely if worn individually because of their quality and dimensionality. Condition is very good. I see no damage to the points of the stones. There are a few dark spots on the pin mechanism of one of the brooches.
The brooches are unsigned, but bear identifying characteristics of Schreiner, both in design and construction: points-up stones, pie-crust settings, dog-tooth prongs, support ring with hooks, pinched pin stem and center-moving clasp.
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: Brown/Gray, Size: 1 3/8 inches
