Gorgeous vintage French brooch, in a sputnik design very popular in the 1950s and 60s, with lilac and amethyst color rhinestone paste. This pin is in excellent, unused condition and measures about 2" x 1 3/4".
Typical French trombone clasp to the reverse, and I could not find a signature, but inspection with a loop, especially on the reverse, indicate that it was exquisitely hand crafted and looks like it was rarely if ever worn. Unusual for a jewel of this quality to not be signed. I had it sent to me with another faux jewel of very high quality by Madame CISS from a dealer in France , but I can't say for sure if this one is made by CISS or not.
French in origin, I would say circa 1950-1960s.
