A colorful brooch set in layers of autumn oranges, greens and aura borealis white crystals, this brooch is very well handmade as evidenced on the reverse. In good vintage condition with all stones present, it measures about 1 3/4" and dimensionally layered about 3/4" high.
Unmarked, it has the kind of wavy back setting that reminds one of Countess CIS, but it is not. It is just made so well, that I naturally think FRENCH. Could be unsigned Regency or Schreiner as they too used a similar type of claw setting and wavy closed back, but I believe it is from Austria. All original stones are bright, one smaller stone at the very bottom exhibits just a bit of oxidation, so I have priced the jewel accordingly.
It really is gorgeous and has the kind of quality construction of Haute Couture with the highly leaded crystals of Eisenberg. Such a lovely vintage pin to wear for the upcoming autumn season. I would date it to the 1950-1960s.
