Vintage Artisan Geometric Modernist Inlaid Metal Brooch Cultured Pearl: This amazing modernist brooch is artisan crafted, but unsigned. The work is incredibly detailed, with depth and dimension. The brooch is inlaid with a variety of materials in white, black and brick red. I am unable to tell what the material is. The recessed areas are inlaid with small angled tiles of gold and copper colored material. A 6 mm genuine cultured pearl adorns the open center of the brooch. The metal is a dense, heavy dark metal, doesn't test as sterling and is not pewter. I truly have no idea what it is. The craftsmanship on this brooch is amazing. It measures 1 3/4 by 1 1/2 and is shockingly unsigned.
