Large, fine detail, awing dimensionality that would just could not seem to capture with the lens ~ craftsmanship extraordinaire ~ this superb piece with deep and luminous aqua center measures 2 7/8" high by 1 7/8" wide and raises up about 7/8" from it's base. Weighs a substantial 51 grams.
Masterfully designed and executed, this Sterling silver Pennino brooch represents some of the finest artistry and craft you will find.
Very good vintage condition: all stones appear to be original; possible slight shifting in the baguettes that surround the aqua center; the rose gold plating has worn and remains as highlights to the sterling leaves and beautiful scrolling bottom. Minor historical surface wear to the sterling. A few of the aqua stones have an ever so slight pale yellowing - not sure if it's the crystal or what is underneath that is causing it. Regardless, the piece is stunning, more clear and detailed than the photos seem to suggest.
Simply an extraordinary piece of vintage jewelry, worthy of any collection.
