One of Freirich's best. Mottled, speckled, stippled, oval matte glass cabochons in rich shades of turquoise, mustard, olive and charcoal adorn this wonderful '60 vintage maltese cross brooch in coppery goldtone. Oval cabs are dogtooth pronged, off set on spiked flutes, anchored with a central matte glass cab, dogtooth pronged, in turquoise with light olive speckling. Wonderful Dragon Egg cabs and colors with a delightful modernist twist.
The brooch measures approximately 2 1/8 inches across with a 7/16 inch profile. Weight is about 28 grams.
Condition is excellent vintage. All components original and intact. Cabochons free from chips, nicks, cracks or breaks. Gorgeous mottling and soft matte finish. Goldtone metal has a coppery finish that complements the cabs beautifully. Finish intact, front and back. No dents or improper bends. All soldering secure. Pin back straight, strong and secure. No damage / no repairs.
Reverse of brooch is signed on pin back bar with "FREIRICH". Freirich began marking jewelry in 1964. Due to this brooch's design, construction and color scheme, I believe it dates to around the mid '60s.
