Art Deco Signed Pin Gold Silver Lady Face Brooch Vintage Jewelry $155

CLICK TITLE TO BUY

This very impressive large lady face pin or pendant is signed Art Deco with the design number B362. Art Deco is the name of the US jewelry designer that made this piece in the 1980s. Jewelry that was made by this designer is hard to find today as they did not produce a lot of jewelry.

This brooch is big, heavy, and thick. It is a glemaing mixed metal combination made of solid brass with thick and polished gold and silver plating. The lady has an Art Deco look with wind swept hair and a long slender face. The hair is textured gold with black enamel in the recessed areas. The face is a highly polished silver metal and the eyes and mouth are accented in gold.

The brooch is molded in relief in an arched 3D fashion. The brooch is about 3 1/2" tall x 2 1/2" wide or 8.5 cm x 6.5 cm. It weighs 86 grams, or about 3 ounces. You can get a better indication of the size by looking at the photo of the brooch in my hand.

The brooch, both front and back, is in excellent pristine clean condition. There are no scratches, dings, or other imperfections. The back is finished in glistening textured gold and the brooch has the original fine working safety clasp and a large bail.
