Marks

"ALICE CAVINESS" in block letters on oval cartouche

This Alice Caviness brooch from the 1950s has navettes and round glass stones in shades of amethyst and peridot. They are layered like the petals of a flower, with a lovely art-glass stone in both colors at the center. The setting is gold-tone with a roll-over safety clasp. This color combination is unusual and serene. The darkening of the metal in some spots does not diminish the beauty of this piece. I think this designer’s work is often overlooked.
