Amethyst, Diamanté & Vermeil Sterling Bouquet 1940s Brooch by Coro

Amethyst, Diamanté & Vermeil Sterling Bouquet 1940s Brooch by Coro


Additional information




1 1/2" x 3 1/2"




c.1943 (based on design patent and use of sterling, per Brunialti)


"Coro Craft" (in script) and "STERLING" on oval cartouche


Design patent D136,506 issued to Adolph Katz in 1943

This Corocraft brooch is just stunning! This Adolph Katz-designed piece has four pavé stems topped with faceted, oval amethyst-glass stones that are gathered through the center of a flower with diamanté-rimmed gold-plated sterling silver petals. The gold-plating on the flower is perfect – the difference in tone you see is from the camera’s reflection. What an outstanding example of the Retro Modern style! I have photographed the brooch 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 jewel, which closes with a roll-over safety clasp, is rich in contrasting colors and was in my personal collection. Wear it on the lapel of a blazer, and I guarantee you’ll be noticed!
