Here is another fabulous 1940s Retro Modern sterling silver bouquet produced by Adolf Katz for Coro’s high-end line. This piece features foil-backed emerald rhinestone flowers with clear baguette stems, tied with a gold-washed scroll adorned with emerald rhinestones and diamanté.  This piece has a complex construction, as illustrated by the rivets that bind the elements, and a roll-over safety clasp. This brooch was included in an ad in the August 1, 1944 issue of Vogue that featured Coro-Craft Masterpieces of Fashion Jewelry. The first image shows the brooch as it is positioned in the ad; the second shows it as positioned in the technical drawing for the design patent. You decide how to wear it!
