One of the lesser known but most sought after companies who designed and manufactured costume jewelry in the 40s and 50s, PENNINO designs always exude a sense of glamour and drama. This example, a PENNINO Green Floral Brooch Pin in Goldplated White Metal does not disappoint. Some of the gold plating has worn off, but with high polish the resulting patinated look today ressembles what i call unimetal, a combination of yellow and white shinyness that bespeaks vintage age and history, and doesn't detract from the wearability and look of the pin. Construction with grommets and screws is visible on the reverse side, as is the unusual method the flower pods are created with a framework for stones to be set into. Original pinback is extant and functions perfectly. SIGNED. Very good vintage condition even given the minor plating losses.
