This is a striking Otto Robert Bade set from the late 1950s – early 60s. Otto Robert Bade was a foreman for the famed Frank Rebajes in New York during the 40s and 1950s. Rebajes sold his catalog of designs and machinery to Otto Robert Bade when he retired and Bade relocated to New Hope, Pennsylvania and continued to create modernist masterpieces. Bade is pictured in Rebajes New York workshop in Copper Art Jewelry by Burkholz and Kaplan on page 32. It is rare to find a complete set and this sculptural stunner features a large pin, a pendant, and matching clip back earrings. The dynamic design reminds me of a swirling comet; each piece is made of beautifully hand wrought Sterling silver that features darkened –niello-shadings, adding to its dimensionality. The pin measures 3 inches long and one and three-quarter inches wide, the earrings measure 1 ½ inches long and almost 1 inch wide, and the pendant itself measures an inch and a half long and nearly 1 inch wide, with an 18 inch long chain. All pieces are marked Sterling except the chain – I am not sure if it is Sterling silver. The pendant and the pin are signed ORB for Otto Robert Bade. The condition is excellent. Mid century modern studio jewelry by the masters, such as Otto Robert Bade, is truly jewelry as art. Good design and high quality craftsmanship are timeless – you will treasure this set. $159.00
