This beautiful Castlemark brooch measures 2 inches by 2 1/8 inches and has a height of 1/2 an inch from the surface it is pinned to. The stem; as on a real cut flower shows the most wear ( was this intentional? ) On magnified inspection it does display some fine scratches to the metal finish, but most of the metal appears very shiny; there are no dead rhinestones; all sparkle and none are missing. There are two white glass pearls. one each in the throat of its flowers. We believe this one will be as prized a find today for along time collector as it will be for the beginner/novice's. One does not even have to rob a bank to have this for their very own, check out it's reasonable asking price. Castlemark / Castlecliff is always on our hunt list! ( R9258 )
Castlemark, the company, began life in 1937 and signed its creations briefly by that same name from 1941 until their name changed to Castlecliff, in 1945; finding some of those early scarce signed pieces can truly be a FIND! Castlemark/Castlecliff's ad motto starting in 1945 until their end in 1970 was "The Talked about Jewelry" and almost every piece of their jewelry we have ever picked up makes us realize this to be TRUE. Their beautiful designs, use of fine components, excellent construction and execution; rank them among the finest jewelry companies the U.S.A. has ever produced. Wonderful designers too! A name many of you will recognize; Larry Vrba ( who later became a prolific / major head designer for Miriam Haskell ), had his historic design beginnings as a renown Castlecliff head designer! Fascinating, beautiful and innovative pieces like this one remain in excellent condition after all these years. This brooch is approximately 75 years old!
