Eisenberg Jewelry Vintage Crystal Pin 1940s Stunning Big Clear Brooch
Eighteen very large "brilliant clear" crystals make up this captivating stacked dome brooch. From the 1940s, this rare and impressive brooch is not signed but it was most likely made by Eisenberg, denoted by the quality and the huge crystal chatons.
These crystals are what is known as brilliant clears. They are old world Bohemian lead crystals, with the weight of old crystal. They have perfect sparkling clear "ice like" brilliance, like the old cut crystal your mother or grandmother may have in their hutch cabinets.
Im not talking about new crystal from Poland like the kind you see in TJ Maxx or Tuesday Morning. You know the difference between top quality crystal and lesser grades because your mother or your grandmother taught you the ping or the wet rim test, and you can see with your own eyes the pure shimmering brilliance of real premium crystal.
This brooch will almost fill the palm of your hand at 2 " wide or 5 cm. It is very weighty at 36 grams. The brooch is made of silver rhodium metal and all of the crystals are prong set. The large chatons have brilliant diamond cut facets and each chaton is a whopping 1/2" or 12 mm wide. There are some smaller chatons in the design as well.
The entire brooch both front and back is in pristine professionally cleaned condition. All of the crystals are perfect with no scratches, chips, scuffs, or cloudiness. There is some very light and minor facet wear on the top crystal hardly worth noting. All of the prongs have perfect rhodium finishes and the rhodium on the back is perfect as well. The back of the brooch has some very fine light microscopic scratches from gentle handling and the original fine working safety clasp is in place.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new luxury presentation brooch box.
