This gorgeous vintage brooch looks like a Schreiner piece at first glance, but it's clearly marked "WEISS" on the back. It features a variety of stone shapes and sizes, all faceted. The hues of blue vary, and some are AB coated accent stones that add an extra hint of sparkle. Style and construction date this one to the late 1950s or early 1960s.
Large measuring 2.25 inches wide
Very good vintage condition, no damages, nothing missing, all authentic, original, functional, clean and ready to wear.
It will be carefully wrapped to ensure its safe travels. It would make a wonderful gift to many vintage jewelry collectors and/or Weiss designer collectors.
Extra: last pic shows a pair of Weiss earrings that would complement this pin beautifully. If interested on creating the set, search for "earrings by Weiss" in the shop and add to your shopping cart.
