"STERLING CoroCraft" with Pegasus

Two rows of amethyst glass stones separated by two rows of diamanté sit at the center of diamanté-studded folds of rose gold-plated sterling silver that form this 1940s Duette by Coro. This piece, which was created for Corocraft, the company’s high-end line, can be worn as a brooch or as separate fur clips. (Duette is Coro’s name for their double-clip brooch.) My camera picked up two stones that are a different shade of purple, but this difference cannot be seen by the naked eye. You can see the utility patent for the brooch mechanism here, shown below Coro’s name.
