Reference

Design patent D140,941 issued to Adolph Katz in 1945

This 1940s brooch features amethyst, ruby and peridot glass stone calla lilies tied in a bow and accented with fuchsia and blue glass stones and diamanté. The setting of this Retro Modern piece has a rose-gold wash over sterling silver, with a roll-over safety clasp.    Although the drawing in the design patent shows this brooch with the flowers facing down, I prefer them facing up because they look as though they’re reaching for the sky! You can see this brooch in this orientation in the third photo. This gorgeous Adolph Katz design from CorocraftCoro’s high-end line, was also made with all citrine glass stone – scroll down to see that version.

    Citrine & Rose Vermeil Sterling Calla Lily 1940s Brooch by Adolph Katz for Coro

    , ,
    Three deep citrine-colored prong-set glass-stone calla lilies are tied in a matching accented bow in this 1940s Retro Modern brooch. The setting has a rose-gold wash over sterling silver, with a roll-over safety catch. Until I saw the drawing on the design patent (see the last photo), I thought the brooch should be worn the other way around, so the flowers look as though they're reaching for the sky! I've positioned this piece in that direction in the third photo. This lovely Adolph Katz design for Coro's high-end line, Corocraft, was also made in multi-colored stones – scroll down to see it.
