Design patent D136,868 issued to Adolph Katz in 1943; 1943 magazine ad

This 1940s Coro brooch is named Stars in the Sky. This large bouquet designed by Adolph Katz is a triumph of the Retro Modern style. Rose-gold-plated sterling silver stems are held together with furls of ribbon and topped with faceted glass stones in shades of emerald, sapphire, ruby and citrine. This piece cost $15 in 1943 (when the median household income in the U.S. was less than $45 a week). This brooch was advertised in the September 1, 1943 issue of Vogue.
