$ 245

Additional information




2 1/4" diameter




c.1946-1947 (based on design patent and use of sterling, per Brunialti)


"Coro" (in script) with Pegasus and "STERLING" on rectangular cartouche


Design patent D147,442 issued to Adolph Katz in 1947 (application filed in 1946)

This vintage brooch pendant is a substantial 1940s ‘2-for-1’ jewel. The gold-plated sterling silver flower is embellished with aquamarine- and ruby-glass stones and diamanté accents. The petals of the flower have decorative piercing and are tilted and slightly curled, giving it lots of life. Designed by the remarkable Adolph Katz, this three-dimensional piece is a fine example of the Retro Modern style. One photo shows the pendant on a black cord, but you may prefer a gold chain. A 17-inch, 2mm black rubber cord with a stainless steel twist lock (just like the one in the photo) is included with this purchase. Scroll down to see similar brooches with a diamanté center (one has the pendant loop) as well as a bracelet with that design, all by the same maker. Note that any bright color variations in metal are only camera reflections.
