The Hollywood Jewelry Manufacturing Company was founded in 1938 in New York City by Joseph Chorbajian, his cousin (name unknown) and Jack Hazard. The Hollycraft name was first used in 1948. Operations halted in 1971. Hollycraft's Christmas tree pins, as well as it's pastel pieces, dated jewels and large, extravagantly embellished aurora borealis botanical beauties are of special interest.

The brooch presented, circa 1950s-1960s, is the perfect example of Hollycraft's organically inspired work. Huge aurora borealis headlight rhinestone blossoms are encircled with accent ab rhinestones, rosette fashion. Branches / vines entwine throughout bearing shoots / spears of rhinestone encrusted foliage. Hollycraft's warm burnished brass tone finish harmonizes perfectly with the aurora borealis flashes of golds, pinks, and violets.

The brooch measures about 2 5/8 inches x 2 inches at it's widest point with a 5/8 inch profile or height. Large aurora borealis rhinestones are 6 millimeters, 10 millimeters and a whopping 14 millimeters. Weight of the brooch is a generous 38 grams.

Condition is very good to excellent vintage. All components intact. All rhinestone intact and brilliant. There is some commensurate age wear to the ab finish on some stones you may be able to see in the photos. Color dispersion and sparkle remain vibrant. All brass tone finish intact, front and back. All soldering neat and secure. Pin mechanism strong and secure. Extremely clean. Spectacular presentation. Very good to excellent vintage.

Reverse of largest brooch blossom is signed: "HOLLYCRAFT" no copyright symbol. It dates circa 1950s-1960s.

Signature stones and style from Hollycraft. Flip free recognition. At Cody's.
