This lovely Cini designer piece features several delicate forget-me-nots blooming and leaves unfurling from a branch: nature at its finest. A sterling silver solid cast, this brooch dates from the late 1940s or early 1950s and came out of Attleboro, Massachusetts, one of the most prominent jewelry hubs of the era. Designer Guglielmo Cini, an Italian emigre, resided in the Boston area until relocating to California once his designs caught the eyes of the Hollywood elite.
Excellent vintage condition.
Marked "STERLING" by Cini.
The brooch measures approximately 2" in length and 2" width. Weighs 22 grams.
