Design patent D136,506 issued to Adolph Katz in 1943
This stunning amethyst, diamanté and vermeil sterling silver bouquet brooch by Adolph Katz for CoroCraft, Coro’s high-end line, is a wonderful example of the Retro Modern style. This piece has four pavé stems topped with amethyst glass stones and gathered through the center of a flower with diamanté-rimmed gold-plated sterling silver petals. I have photographed the piece in the horizontal position, as it appears in the patent drawing, but you could also wear it vertically (as shown in the second photo). This brooch, which closes with a roll-over safety clasp, is rich in contrasting colors. This piece was in my personal collection. Wear it on the lapel of a blazer, and I guarantee you’ll be noticed!
