What's for sale?
This is a small, signed brooch in a radiating design of a bright blue and silver-coloured flower. It was made by Coro, the well-known American costume jewellery maker.
There are eight square, blue rhinestones, surrounding eight small, clear diamantes, surrounding a larger, round blue rhinestone at the centre. There body is a silver-coloured, metal alloy. It is secured by a pin with rollover clasp.
It is small but very pretty and catches the light well. The contrast of the two colours is very effective.
Who made it and when?
On the back, in script, it is engraved:
