Quivering enamel tulips brooch by Adolph Katz for Coro 1939. In American Costume Jewelry, Brunialti calls this its manufactured name of quivering pistils double tulips brooch. Today you hear it referred to as a trembler. In this brooch, the baguette stones are red. The brown stem and green leaf enameling is in extremely good condition. In fact, the only flaw we notice is one of the tiny paved stones is dead. Even the rhodium plating gives very little evidence of its age. This is a substantial brooch at 3.75 inches, yet its so tastefully designed it does not look gaudy. What I especially love is the curved Art Deco appearance that represent the pedals. There were a number of styles of these made, and this one is at the top of the list. Note that is brooch is unmarked.
It's easy to see why we've included this brooch in our special collection being featured this month. The last photo showcases it with a couple of the other brooches worthy of being presented in Brunialti's jewelry bible of the best of the best. Now is your chance to buy a bit of glamour from the past.
