Marked by style, this unsigned sterling silver brooch, circa 1940s, embodies the body and soul of Reja. The subject matter and design, stone selection and setting methods, heavy sterling quality metalwork / construction and pin mechanism and attachment are all indicative of Reja's work.
The brooch features a sterling silver stemmed flower blossom with accompanying foliage / leaves. Ice blue glass round brilliants are dentelle faceted (for extra sparkle) and unfoiled and open backed; cradled in deep baskets and abutted against the clear rhinestone encrusted domed center and heavy tab / prong set at opposite end. This setting method is characteristically Reja. Design and shape of rhinestone tipped leaves and paved stem are also signatures of the firm's botanical designs. Classically elegant and ever enduring, the blossom is a sterling example of Reja's limited production (1939-1953).
The brooch measures a generous 2 3/4 inches x 1 7/8 inches at it's widest point with a maximum profile or height of 1/2 inch. Dentelle faceted chatons are about 12 millimeters. Weight of the brooch is a substantial approximate 40 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All art glass round brilliants free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks. All are secure within settings. All rhinestones intact and brilliant. Excellent sparkle for this vintage. No dents or improper bends to sterling. Pin shaft has slight bend not affecting function. Pin mechanism strong and secure. Clean. Minor wear.
