Coro Duette pin in a floral design, gold color over silver colored base. Wear to the gold surface color allowing the silver color to show through on high edges of flowers and along the outside edges of the piece. Nice contrast, but most likely originally made with an all-over gold color. The shank of the pin is very slightly bent, as shown. Mechanically everything works fine.
Pieces can be worn separately as two clips, or worn braced together as a brooch. Marked "Coro" and "Pat. 1852188" on each individual clip and "Coro Duette" with "Pat. 1798867" on the brace, or frame. Each clip is 1 1/8 inch wide at its widest point and 1 3/8 inches long. When joined together they make a 2 3/4 inch brooch.
Uncommon antiques for the investor and choice collectibles for the clever collector.
COLLECTION: A time machine on a shelf; a museum in the kitchen. Reach out to touch the memory of sweet childhood laughter.
