The '40s gave us voluptuous, voluminous brooches, brimming with swirls and curls, volutes and furls. Exuberant and often exaggerated the pins could transform the simple into the spectacular -- the austere into the awesome.

The silver tone brooch presented, circa 1940s is textbook era. Nine fantastic long stemmed beauties bud with faceted oval ruby red art glass stones (unfoiled and open backed). Each stone is ingeniously set as an integrated part of the blossom -- the "sepal" and "stigma" securing the stones at south and north. The bouquet is bound with a baguette and pave chaton set knot. Big bow ribbons loop and trails extend -- select portions sparkling with accent chaton rhinestones.

The brooch measures a generous approximate 3 3/4 inches x 2 1/4 inches at it's widest point with a 3/8 inch profile or height. Oval stones are difficult to measure within their settings but are about 11 millimeters x 8 millimeters. Baguettes are about 3 millimeters and accent chatons between 1 - 2.5 millimeters. Weight of the brooch is a hefty 46.1 grams.

Condition is excellent vintage. All components intact. All oval glass stones retain color, spark and glow. No chips, nicks, cracks or breaks. All secure within tab prong settings. All rhinestones intact. Baguettes are brilliant. As common with cup set chatons of this age there may be some commensurate dimming. No dents or improper bends to metal components. All soldering secure. All silver tone finish intact, front and back. Pin shaft has slight bend not affecting function. Clean. No damage / no repairs. Excellent vintage.

The brooch is not signed. It's design, materials, construction and overall presentation indicates a creation sometime during the 1940s.

Put drab and dreary back in the closet. Personify the power of presentation. Pin it on. At Cody's.
