Vintage Reinad Sceptron Sterling Bow Pin with Blue Rhinestones - Book Reference

$95.00

This is a gorgeous vintage Retro Moderne mid-20th century brooch. Marked "Sterling" and "Sceptron" on the reverse. Two rows of small white rhinestones mark the bow's knot, while larger blue rhinestones line the inner bow. A very dimensional pin, it measures 2.5" across, 1.5" high, and domes out to nearly half an inch. In very good to excellent condition - a bit of patina, which I've only lightly cleaned.

"Sceptron" was a mark of the Reinad jewelry company, and was first used in 1944. Accordingly, this pin dates from the later 1940s, perhaps the early 1950s.
