Italian Deco silver and chrysoprase Pin / Brooch Pendant ~ Peruzzi style Renaissance Revival

on Jan 29, 2020 in Necklaces, Pins/brooches, US/European

Not signed for maker nor place of origin yet undoubtedly an Italian piece from the opening decades of the 20th c. this big, bold, ornate combination pin/pendant displays the quality and attention to detail signed Peruzzi pieces from the same period are known and sought after for. The delicate wirework of the cruciform body is so carefully finished and the beaded accents around the bezel-set stone perfect. The chrysoprase cab itself, magically translucent, looks like a piece of old-fashioned mint candy. I am at a loss as to why the maker did not sign such a delicate, gorgeous creation. Wear it as a pin or combine it with your favorite vintage chain to enjoy as a spectacular necklace…
