Vtg Estate Fruit Salad Pin Unsigned WEISS Rhinestone Cluster Brooch Glass Stone

Title   Vtg Estate Fruit Salad Pin Unsigned WEISS Rhinestone Cluster Brooch Glass Stone

Condition   mint

Item Number   givre5

So here's what I know about this piece. 30 years ago while scouring a basement in Old Providence on my usual quest for treasures - I came upon a stash of these beauties. I sold most over the years but still hung onto a couple - hoarder that I am. They were not new when I bought them so I really have no clue how old they actually are. My best guess is 50's. This piece is immaculate. The silver plating on the backside is gemmy. It's been tucked away and wrapped for years. I believe this is actually the last one I have. Will check in the store when I go to close today but pretty sure it is. All the glass stones are prong set. Being glass of course it is heavy. It weighs 58.6 grams. It measures 4 and 3/8 inches across and 2.5 inches tall - it's a big one. The stones are all secure and vibrant - no dead stones, cracks, chips or fleabites. There are tiny rectangles and a big huge red. Really unique marquis prong setting that I rarely see in different colors. There are 2 clear givre with blue insets. When I bought these way back when I actually bought them with the intention of just salvaging the vintage stones but once I got them home I just couldn't do it. They were just too fine to tear apart. It's truly a beautiful vintage piece with the long lasting quality that Providence was know for aside from the tarnish. And of course a one and only. None of them were alike - all had different color stones. I do have some smaller ones and will try to remember to shoot some of those pictures and get them up. Thanks for looking. This item will come to you in a gift box suitable for gift giving.

Price = 73.00 USD
