Reference

Design patent D146,035 issued to Adolph Katz in 1946

This Duette, Coro’s name for their double clip/brooch, is a pair of flowers with diamanté centers and oval petals, crowned with baguettes, and set in pavé-embellished sterling silver. It was designed as part of the Platina line by Adoph Katz for the company’s high-end pieces. You can wear this one as a brooch or as separate fur clips. The latter look great on weightier fabrics, such as wool blazers and dresses. This piece was advertised along with the complete Platina line in a fashion magazine with the copy: “Glittering glamour set in sterling silver with that ‘platinum look'”. You can see the utility patent for the brooch mechanism here, shown below Coro’s name.
