Every once in a while there is a piece so romantic that it makes me catch my breath.
This enchanting handcrafted brooch was commissioned by Jack for Barbara, in 1941.
The Craftsmanship in this piece is superb and it it hand set with over 300 individually faceted Marcasites. They radiate out in a starburst pattern around the initials B L C
There is a hand engraved dedication of Jack to Barbara , 2/ 13/41.
This fabulous brooch comes from a Fine estate whose owner had several wonderful brooches and this is by far the nicest example of Sterling and Marcasite that I have ever seen.
If you are Jack, then, buy this stunner for your Barbara. If these letters were even close to my own initials, I would be wearing this beauty right now.
This perfect Brooch measures just over 2 inches in a circle. There is a slight dome to the Brooch that accentuates the Initials and the Pin stem is secure with a locking finding mechanism.
I can not tell you how sweet and Nostalgic this brooch is. It must have taken a week for the craftsman to make this piece and it is a sheer labor of love. They don't make them like this any more and I have never seen a man as Romantic as this Jack . He makes me wish that I were named Barbara.
