Catch of the Day! …
Evocative of mid-century studio pieces by Rebajes and Pujol, yet displaying offbeat Post Modern sensibilities, this hand-sawn fish brooch delivers a splendid piece of wearable art. Here, the piscine portrait is a marvel of sinuous, undulating form—its body composed of copper and brass layers, presented in a variety of peened, stippled, and reticulated patterns. And in a final accent, the figure is given a whimsical pierced eye, etched in the shape of a five-pointed star. Wonderfully dimensional, cleverly detailed, and expertly constructed, the brooch promises to garner attention from all who see it.
HALLMARKS: Unsigned. DIMENSIONS: 3-1/8" x 1-7/8". WEIGHT: 21.8 grams. CONDITION: Excellent to superior vintage condition, with no issues evident. The brooch is fitted with a secure, rollover-locking clasp in silver.
