This is a vintage solid copper painter's palette brooch circa 1950's/1960's. The painter's palette was a symbol of the 'Beat Generation" and their concept of Art as Revolution, a movement that overlapped with the Peace and Love hippy movement of the time.

The brooch is 4 inches by 1 3/4 inches. This design was popularized and manufactured by Renoir, Danecraft, Beau Sterling, and many other companies who all did their own versions of the Artist Palette. This piece is not signed or marked.

The brooch is in very good condition. There are some use and wear marks on the copper, but no major dents, dings, scratches, or scuffs. The brooch is probably lacquered, as it is the original penny bright copper color on the front. The back is brushed copper. The pin and catch work well.

This is a lovely bold take on a classic historical symbol of Art as Revolution!
