From "Copper Studios" in New York – 1955, I am offering for your collection this superb ceramic and copper tribal mask brooch and matching earrings. Some sellers feel this was produced by the California Pottery Company, but I do not feel this is correct. I would be happy to hear your opinion.
This set is in excellant vintage condition and consists of a clear gloss glaze over turquoise underglaze. The mask has then been applied to a copper base. The patina is simply gorgeous and I am hoping you will leave it as is..Please note that it was impossible to photograph this set and not have glare spots. On every photo, other than the back views, you will see glare on the ceramic..
Tribal Mask Brooch: This is a large impressive image with a hammered copper head dress and copper coil decoration. Lovely patina and slight crazing. There are no chips, cracks, nor issues to mention.. Beautiful! The roll-over safety clasp is very secure. The brooch is 3 and 3/8 inches in length and 1 and 3/8 inch wide. The profile is about 1/2 inch. Tribal Mask Earrings: These are just a bit darker in glaze than the mask on the brooch (see photos). Again they are in excellant condition with no chips, cracks, nor any crazing. They measure 1 inch in length by 7/8 inch wide. The profile is about 3/8 inch.
Please contact me if you have additional questions.....
