Reference

Design patent D140,941 issued to Adolph Katz in 1945

This 1940s brooch is a rose-gold-plated sterling silver ribbon tied in a three-looped bow. Three stems of calla lilies with navette centers of amethyst, ruby, and peridot glass sit on top. Tiny pink tourmaline, sapphire, and diamanté navettes tie the stems together. The pin closes 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, reaching for the sky! The photos show both positions, so you can decide. This gorgeous Retro Modern design by Adolph Katz for Coro’s high-end line was also made with all citrine flowers – scroll down to see that version.

    Citrine Calla Lily Brooch by Coro

    , ,

    This calla lily brooch is a rose-gold-plated sterling silver ribbon tied in a three-looped bow. Three stems of flowers with citrine-glass navette centers sit on top, and three tiny navettes tie the stems together. This 1940s Retro Modern creation has a roll-over safety catch. Until I saw the drawing on the design patent (in the last photo), I thought the brooch should be worn the other way around, so the flowers are reaching for the sky! The photos show the brooch both ways, so you can decide. This lovely Adolph Katz design for Coro’s high-end line, Corocraft, was also made with multi-colored stones – scroll down to see it.
