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 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.

The pearls are in excellent condition with a glowing creamy white luster. The central pearl is slightly higher than the outer pearls. The flower petals have a dimpled border and high polish center.
