Gold Nugget Mushroom Scatter Pins 1960s Jewelry
These scatter pins are also a neat blast from the past when mushrooms were an " in" fashion statement in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
It is nice to find these pins still together as a set. The design is elegant and sophisticated and although they are not signed, I believe they were made by DeNicola. DeNicola had a patented method of micro-crystalline gold texturing that is unlike any other designer.
The caps on the mushroom have a fine micro sand texture of encrusted gold. This texturing is 18kt gold and the rest of the mushroom is yellow gold gilt over brass. The caps have a wave or hat like shape and underneath you can see the rib like structure; under the cap and on the stem.
These pins are petite and each measures 1" tall x 1" wide. Both have the original fine working safety clasps and both are in pristine excellent condition with no signs of wear or other imperfections.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new presentation jewelry box.
