Need a hand? Well here’s an arm for good measure. This artisan brooch is handmade, the branch-like arm is crafted from bronze while the pin is made up of 18k and 14k gold. The arm and fingers feature rugged irregular lines, and a textured palm which makes the brooch feel like the Brutalist modern equivalent to the dainty hand motif jewelry of the Victorian age. This piece is the definition of wearable art, a miniature sculpture in its own right.
Excellent vintage condition.
The piece is signed by the artist but we were unable to identify (see photo). It is also marked "18K," "14K" and "Bronze."
The brooch measures 3” long, the hand is approximately 7/8” wide.
