Classic Art Deco Winged Brooch

Many people including Clive have put used or unwanted jewelry in a cigar box and placed them in a bureau drawer or some such and there they lay sometimes for years and years.  Clive recently opened one of his cigar boxes and pulled out this beauty.  It’s a classic Art Deco design brooch replete  with a cornucopia of  pavé   Rhinestones surrounded by red crystal baguettes and a 6 bar square cut rhinestones pointing eastward. This brooch has seen better days but that means it was worn a great deal.  It contains scratches and marks consistent with wear.  The metal is brass and all the stones are original although a few have diminished in shine.   What makes this brooch valuable warts and all is  its design.  It would take minimal restoration to increase its value of this brooch tenfold. Nothing has been done to this brooch, you see it as it came out  of that infamous cigar box.  Lets find a new home for this great classic !

“One Should Either Be A Work Of Art, Or Wear A Work Of Art”   Oscar Wilde

In all 4 publications, Eleanore Sue McMillan has elevated collectible costume jewelry to a higher art form.  Eleanore’s publications are not “coffee table” books but vast informational guides to collecting costume jewelry.

Eisenburg Original White Crystal 1940’s Fur Clip

Any individual who loves, wears or collects costume jewelry must have absolutely, positively without question an Eisenberg pin/brooch/ fur clip in their collection.  Eisenberg Mfg. Co. originally produced clothing and soon embellished  their clothing with dazzling jewelry primarily using Austrian crystals.  The early pieces were signed “Eisenberg Original” and referred to the clothing not the jewelry. After a while, the jewelry became the trademark not the clothing and has been told.  The item presented here is a beautiful example of a 1940’s signed Eisenberg Original Hallmark stamped brooch.   The Austrian clear white crystals are all original and nothing has been replaced and it has been beautifully preserved.  This brooch measures about 3″ in height X 2″ at its widest point.  If you are an absolute, positive individual, then this Eisenberg Original is for you.  Remember,  Clive says jewelry should be as unique as you are !
