Citrine & Gold Spray 1950s Brooch by Elsa Schiaparelli
2" x 1 1/4"
"Schiaparelli" (in script) on oval cartouche
A richly-textured, gold-plated leaf forms the base of this lovely 1950s brooch by Elsa Schiaparelli. The top layer has citrine-glass-stone flowers with pavé silver-tone stems. The level of detail is superb: in addition to the elaborate, layered construction, the leaf has visible veins and a furled bottom on its front and texture on the back. This lovely example of 1950s tailored jewelry is a winner! I’m not sure which way it was intended to be worn, so I’m showing both orientations in the photos – take a look and decide which you prefer.
