One of the most respected names in American costume jewelry, Weiss Jewelry Company was founded in 1942. It different signatures help date its pieces. Our beautiful black brooch is signed with the signature used in 1951.
Made of French jet, an excellent quality black glass. The brooch is a leaf that is a mosaic of glass in various shapes and various sizes, all the same gorgeous, inky, sparkling black glass. The pin shaft at the back is also in black, a metal. In outstanding condition. This is a versatile pin. I've worn it to hold the no-button fronts of sweaters together, at the neck of blouses, on lapels. I can picture it easily on a vintage hat. The brooch measures a shade under 3"L X a shade over 1 1/2"W.
