MARKINGS: The brooch has the WL hallmark inside a shield or car-touche as well as 1/10 12kt on S/S mark on the back. On page 233 of Volume 1 of the "American Costume Jewelry 1935-1950" by Brunialti, it states that Walter Lampl died on August 6, 1945. The company stayed in business under the leadership of Walter's wife Sylvia and his Son Walter Jr., until they closed for business in 1959. The jewelry was designed by company staff but all designs had to be examined and approved by Walter Lampl, who was also the holder of all the patents.
ITEM DESCRIPTION: This retro era brooch depicts 3 large lilies held together with a large ribbon. The flowers are very dimensional even down to the stamens as is the bow. The metal is 1/10 12 kt of yellow gold over sterling silver and weighs 1.1 ounces or 33 grams. It measures 2 1/2" x 3" and stands 1" high when pinned.
CONDITION: The condition is excellent. There is some tarnishing still evident so it may need a gentle cleaning as I have only given it a light one for photo purposes only. There are some slight surface scratches on the back and a few on the front that can most likely be buffed out with a good polishing but it does not detract from this beautiful piece in any way.
