STARET GENUINE 1940s torch brooch, an iconic and patriotic brooch with red and clear rhinestones and enamel
DescriptionSTARET GENUINE 1940s torch brooch, an iconic and patriotic brooch with red and clear rhinestones and blue, red and flesh pink enamel, genuine and made in the 1940s, 4-1/8". This is the real thing and not the later Barnes reproduction, and I have owned both so I know the difference. Staret was based in Chicago, Illinois, and they only made jewelry for a brief period from about 1940-1947. This wonderful brooch is seen in Christie Romero's "Warman's Jewelry", 2nd Ed, page 191, in Brunialti's "Tribute to America" on page 55 and in Brunialti's "American Costume Jewelry, Art & Industry" on page 242.
