So subtle and charming -- in the late 40s, early 50s Coro produced some lovely Victorian revival style jewelry, especially cameos. This cameo is a quiet beauty -- highly polished faceted black glass is set with a matte black plastic side profile of a classical woman's face. The contrast of the shiny and matte black is understated elegance. The cameo is bezel set in a gold tone frame with elaborate Victorian revival details, such as leaves, flowers, and raised beading. The reverse is signed Coro -- no copyright mark -- in cursive script. This helps date the brooch to the late 40s, early 50s. Brooch measures one and three-quarter inches long and 1 1/4 inches wide. Clasp works well. In excellent condition with very slight loss of gold tone to the back of the brooch. This brooch looks magnificent against white or yellow -- a real signature piece. $59.00 DRAMATIC PRICE REDUCTION! NOW $19! GREAT BUY!
