Modernist Silver, Solid Gold and Turquoise Abstract Brooch, Circa 1960
Mid century modernist handmade sterling silver brooch with free form solid gold detail and American southwest turquoise marquis. Very eye catching abstract design. The gold squiggle detail hovers above a concave depression that was designed to showcase a rather gorgeous oxidation...a rainbow of mysterious dark hues, very nicely done. The dimensions are: left to right 2-1/2” and top to bottom (on center) from horizontal gold piece to lowest point of squiggle is 1-1/4”. The turquoise marquis measures 25mm by 6.5mm. The pin mechanism measures approximately 1-1/4” long. Such an awesome, artistic piece of mid century design.
