Vintage Carved Blue Rose Brooch Sterling Marcasite: One of the most beautiful rose brooches I have ever seen, this lovely brooch features a carved dimensional and detailed rose tinted a lovely light blue. The rose is actually carved celluloid. While most celluloid was molded, occasionally it was carved, I have another piece that is also carved and painted celluloid. It is the exception, not the rule. The fine lines on the back of the rose ARE NOT Schreger lines, they are made to mimic ivory by drawing a current through the hot material, a technique also seen used in Italian lucite. The stem and leaves are sterling silver and enhanced with small marcasites. This lovely piece is a very nice size measuring 3 3/8 by 1 3/8". It is signed STERLING on the back of the brooch.
Vintage Egyptian Revival 1980's Winged Scarab Ankh Necklace: Vintage 1980’s Egyptian Revival at its best!

A large textured link chain suspends the medallion. It closes with a substantial spring ring. The chain measures 8 1/2” each side. Unsigned but a very quality piece.
Vintage 1940's Coro Woman Walking Borzoi Dog Chatelaine Brooch: This vintage 1948 Coro brooch was designed by Adolph Katz. The chatelain brooch features an art deco style lady holding her hat in the wind as her skirt swirls. She is holding the leash of a Borzoi dog, a breed especially beloved in the 1920's. The silver tone metal is in excellent condition. The lady measures 2 1/2 by 3" and the dog measures 2 by 1 1/2". Both pieces are signed Coro Pegasus.
Vintage Coro 1940's Ribbed Flower Basket Rhinestone Brooch: This lovely 1940's figural basket brooch from Coro features a wide ribbed flower basket or flower pot with an explosion of leaves and rhinestone set flowers. The stones have been replaced with the correct colors and sizes, it came to me with smaller AB rhinestones, which would never have been in this piece. I love the red/pink/orange color scheme. The brooch measures 2 by 2" and is signed Coro( script).

Vintage Rhinestone Enamel Musical Instrument Set Saxophone Banjo Clarinet: These enchanting musical figural brooches are from the 1930's when figurals were king. The set includes a saxophone , clarinet and banjo. The brooches are encrusted with sparkling rhinestones and black enamel details on silver tone pot metal. These brooches are unsigned but are period copies of the a set made by Ora , the Singer and Agini company. I have included photos of the patent for the Ora pieces. You can see slight differences in the unsigned set. This was a standard practice back in the day and resulted in many lawsuits between companies. The saxophone measures 3 by 1 1/2", the banjo measures 2 1/4 by 3/4" and the clarinet measures 1 7/8 by 3/4". They are in wonderful condition. It a wonder to me that these pieces have managed to stay together for all these years! Unsigned
