Art Deco Style Faux Tortoiseshell Large Geometric Brooch
This is an old geometric brooch made in the Art Deco style. I'm fairly sure that it isn't an original Art Deco piece, judging by the clip and pin on the reverse. I would say it was handmade, probably during the 1950s or 60s.
The main geometric section is made of faux tortoiseshell bakelite, or maybe lucite. It ends in a point and the top section is assymetrical. A further, slightly domed circular section is attached at the top. This has been set into a hammered gold tone metal base.
It is large at just over 4 1/2 inches in length.
When I first saw it there was something really nice and unusual about it that liked, so I decided to buy it for you, despite it being difficult to describe and unusual to look at. I find it very pleasing. You will too.
Size: approx. 4 1/2 inches x 1 1/8 inches at the top
Price: 42 euro

From the get-go, her handcrafted floral-themed costume jewellery was a hit with the stylish women of Manhattan, who adored her intricate necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and pins. Haskell loved gilt findings and filigree, faux pearls, Austrian crystal beads, blown glass beads from the island of Murano, and, above all, rose montees.
