This exact brooch in red is featured on the cover of Judith Miller's 2003 book "Costume Jewelry" and on page 119 of same; another sold in the red color on British Antiques Roadshow for $3500.00 pounds sterling.
To my knowledge this is the only one for sale on the net presently.
Anyone receiving this into their collection...it's made like fine jewelry, solid, enduringly beautiful. I will consider offers on this fantastic piece!
Noted: a laser repair to one of the pave petals not visible to the naked eye. a plating repair to a small spot on the side of one of the petals mm's in size where the plating had flaked off, likely due to normal wear. Plating techniques used for vintage costume jewelry are no longer employed today. The repair was made by "Like New Jewelry Repair" in Walnut Creek, CA. They were recommended to me by one of the Costume Jewelry Collectors International officers. You may know Melinda Lewis or are familiar with her new jewelry book called "The Napier Book."
"Like New" did an excellent job of matching the gold tone and creating a "patch" that is just the right color and not noticeable when donning the brooch; but is upon closer inspection when the brooch is removed as there is a slight difference of texture in the plating. The laser repair was performed by the same shop. More pictures can be sent to you, just ask :)
These don't come up for sale very often so I thought that there might be an interested collector out there. All rhinestones are clear, pave set and have so much glitz, the construction is solid as you can see from the photos. The glass is clear with no chips or cracks. This item will ship alone only. It will arrive priority mail, signature required and insured for the amount of purchase.
