Exquisite Roger Jean Pierre Cascading Leaves and Flowers Rhinestone Brooch: This stunning vintage 1950's brooch is from master French designer Roger Jean Pierre, who created jewelry for the top design houses.

The three flowers float on the center stem above the leaves, set with pale blue rhinestones and purple centers, all stones individually prong set. It is virtually impossible to capture the brilliance of the rhinestones, set off to perfection by the silver tone mounting. The brooch is in wonderful condition. There appears to be initials and possibly a date scratched into the plating on back of one of the navette rhinestones, hard to see with the naked eye but there. The brooch measures 2 3/4 by 1 1/2" and is unsigned, but identified by style and construction. He used hang tags on many of his pieces.

Vintage 1941 Unsigned Rice-Weiner Water Carrier Brooch: This wonderful figural Chinese water carrier brooch was designed by L.C. Mark for Rice-Weiner, with a patent date of Sept. 16, 1941, patent number 129,573. There were several design versions of this brooch, and this one is quite nice! The large figural has a red enamel shirt and rhinestone studded shorts. The rhinestones were mostly missing when I received him, the few left a disaster, so I replaced all of his rhinestones with clear, the original color. Two different size Venetian "wedding cake" beads are suspended from his pole. His plating is in wonderful shape, with slight wear to his nose and a spot on his cheek. He is a very nice size at 3 by 2 3/4", and is unsigned, but verified by design and patent.
