Big Pinwheel Star Flower Pin Lime w Mabe Pearl Brooch 1950s Jewelry $75

Big Pinwheel Star Flower Pin Lime w Mabe Pearl Brooch 1950s Jewelry


Im ashamed to say that I cant tell you who made this brooch. As the design is so unusual, it would be nice to know! What a stunning eye catching pinwheel flower design this is! My vintage jewelry instincts of 30+ years tell me it was most likely made by Judy Lee in the early 1960s. It may also have been made in West Germany or Austria.

At center is a large baroque Mabe pearl surrounded by bright light green Peridot crystals. The long and slender flower petals are four shades of lively greens. The petals are old thermoset plastic and some are semi-translucent and some are frosted. Notice also the petal settings; the gold metal frames are a fancy ribbon style. Look at the back of the brooch and you can also see the unique riveted style construction.

Large in size, this pinwheel flower is 2 3/4" or 70 mm wide.

The entire brooch both front and back is in pristine clean like new condition with no imperfections or flaws. All of the cabs and crystals are original, present, super sparkling, and prong set. There is no gold wear or loss of gold and no scratches or dings. The back has the original fine working safety clasp.

Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new luxury presentation brooch box.
