DEROSA rare purple and green basket in a circle brooch with a lovely unfoiled purple center rhinestone

Designer: DeRosa
Price: $698.00
OR
Description DEROSA rare purple and green basket in a circle brooch with a lovely unfoiled purple center rhinestone for the basket surrounded by lavender and green enameled flowers and leaves and accented with clear rhinestones.  Made in the late 1940s, it has been professionally converted from a fur clip into a brooch, as can be seen in one of the photos, and it is a nice size at 3-1/16" by 2-1/4".

DeRosa did make both fur clips and brooches using the same designs, and I have a couple of examples of that.

This clip also came with much of the enamel work worn, so we had it professionally enameled to as close to the original as possible, and you would never know it if I didn't tell you!  The metal finish also shows some wear and some of the edging is a bit bent.

We have also shown a picture of the original design art work for this piece, just for reference and not for sale.

What a joy to restore this lovely piece!  View   View  View
