Knoll & Pregizer Early Deco Paste Pin
An absolutely exquisite, small and very fine brooch pin by Knoll & Pregizer. From the art deco era but almost Edwardian in style. It has an emerald cut faceted glass faux sapphire set open back in the center surrounded by 10 large bead set clear pastes bordered by tiny bead set pastes with millegrain around the edges all set in heavy 935 sterling silver. This is a weighty piece for something so small in scale. You would swear these are real diamonds and platinum. I have never seen pastes of this age with so much fire and brilliance. My scan could not even capture the beauty of it. The sapphire color is quite deep and the scratches are only visible with a loupe and obviously enlarged by the scanner. Measures 1" long and and 3/4" wide. Marked 935 KP.
It's so striking I'm toying with the idea of having it made into a ring with a gold shank. Today with the miracles of laser, no damage would be done to the piece.
