Stunning Schreiner 1950s ice blue and clear large square brooch

345.00

There is something madly princessy about this fantastic 1950s brooch. Using Schreiner's signature upside down stone technique, this piece glitters and shimmers away reflecting the colours of everything around it. The central glass 'stone' is 1" x 1.25" making it a windowpane into the thing it is being worn on. This piece would look fantastic in the place of a tie on a white shirt or used to gather a draped dress on hip or shoulder. Equally it would be a fantastic addition to any costume jewellery collectors cabinet. Henry Schreiner started the Schreiner Jewellery Company in 1939 and was director until his death in 1954. His daughter and son in law carried the business on until 1977. In the 1950s he made jewellery for Christian Dior. His jewellery is very distinctive for its use of unusual mounts and subtle colour combinations, using the finest quality rhinestones and crystals. He made exceptionally glamorous belts, bib necklaces, unusually coloured baroque brooches (his signature ‘ruffle’ brooch is a classic!), and large pendant earrings, always glamourous. Bette Davis and Marilyn Monroe promoted his jewellery and wore it in various films. His jewellery is widely collected.
