SIMILAR PORTRAIT BROOCHES by other makers

 

   HASKELL/VRBA this fabulous portrait pin was made for a Broadway play by Larry Vrba when he was the designer for Miriam Haskell Jewelry. There was more regal-looking jewelry made for the same play, and I dream of finding other pieces.    View   View   #H10012

   FLORENZA portrait brooch/frame. It is interesting that this is so similar to the Rosenstein portrait brooch and the Haskell/Vrba brooch.    View   #X21469

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
