APOLLO STUDIOS NYC Sash Brooch, Pin, Buckle c.1915

Measurements: 2" x 3"

Apollo Studios of New York was a division of Bernard Rice's & Sons and items marked with the Apollo stamp were made from 1909-1922. These pieces are usually marked only with Apollo, sometimes with Apollo Studios NY or Apollo Ovington followed by some mold (style) numbers. In 1872, the Apollo Silver Co. merged with the bankrupt Redfield & Rice Co, forming the Bernard Rice's Sons. Bernard Rice's & Sons went out of business in 1958. Apollo Studios was a contemporary of TIFFANY Studios and produced some of the similar type items.

The brooch is undamaged. The pin, joint and catch are original.

I have been told that a sash pin was actually worn on the belt or sash of a dress to draw attention to the slender waist so prized by the Victorians and Edwardians - 17" was the size waist every woman hoped to attain.(!!)
