VINTAGE ART DECO EISENBERG FLOWER PIN
SETTERS MARK W
PASTE RHINESTONES, GLASS PEARLS, ENAMEL OVER GOLD PLATED METAL
Exquisite flower pin dating to the 1930's era. It features a large stylized flower, a design theme which was very popular and made in various forms by the jewelers and companies at that time. This one looks like a design by Alfred philippe for Trifiari, but also much like Katz or Verrichio for Coro. But because of the small W stamped into the back of the piece I would be confident in saying this is a very early Eisenberg piece, the W being the stone setters mark. Most, but not all, early Eisenberg jewelry items have a stone setter’s mark in the form of a letter or a number.
The design here is a large, beautiful, single flower bloom, very large and 3 dimensional with two layers of flower petals. The inner petals feature glass pearls and enamel in colors of red and yellow. This is set upon a stem with long, elegant, leaves. The metal work is gorgeous as well with a fine, cut out pattern all over with paste stones set everywhere.
This piece is in very nice vintage condition with the following notations: many of the paste stones have darkened giving them the look of marcasites. The gold plated finish is mostly intact except for an area on the pin back itself (see photo) nothing serious. The darkened stones give it a beautiful look, soft and very antique. A high quality, important, vintage jewelry piece that would be a unique addition to the high end vintage jewelry collection.
Measures approx. 3~5/8" long x 2~1/4" across.
