Hollycraft's famous pastel rhinestones fill every available space in this domed rectangular brass tone brooch. Oval, chaton and pear shaped stones in pink, blue, peridot and olivine green point to the pinnacle -- a large violet colored oval rhinestone. A wonderfully wearable size and shape, awash in Hollycraft's palette of pastels.
The brooch measures approximately 1 3/4 inches x 1 1/2 inches with a 1/2 inch profile or dome. Large center oval rhinestone is about 14 millimeters x 10 millimeters; smaller ovals, 7 millimeters x 5 millimeters. Weight of the brooch is 18 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All rhinestones intact, retaining colors and sparkle. No dead stones. A very few of the small cup set chatons may have dimmed slightly, common in Hollycraft pieces of this vintage. No chips, nicks, cracks or breaks to stones. Metal components free from dents, improper bends or crush. All brass tone finish intact, front and back. Pin mechanism strong and secure. Extremely clean. No damage / no repairs. Superb presentation.
