The Buccellati family first began working in the jewelry trade in Italy in the mid-eighteen century. In 1919 Mario Buccellati took over an existing firm and renamed it 'Buccellati' and their fame grew quickly. In the following years, he gained a loyal following at home at abroad and was dubbed "The Prince of Goldsmiths". Buccellati became the first Italian jeweler with a location on Fifth Avenue, New York City in 1951. Every bit of the surface of a Buccellati piece is worked and finished, often then resembling a fine piece of fabric. According to the firm, their target is a "contemporary woman with class, who likes to live with style and wear jewels on every occasion with self-assurance." In 2000, special Buccellati objects and jewels were gathered for an exhibition at the Smithsonian Museum to celebrate the firm's art and creativity.

This brooch is designed as a textured squirrel with a circular-cut ruby eye and fluffy tail, climbing up a realistically textured sterling branch. Absolutely the most amazing workmanship in the detail of this piece. Signed: Buccellati

A fabulous piece of wearable art from one of the icons of the modernist jewelry movement; some of his pieces are in the collection of the Museum of Arts & Design in New York. Ed Wiener worked largely in silver until the 1950s when he branched out into gold and precious jewels. Among his clients were Louise Nevelson, the sculptor and Martha Graham, the dancer. A life long New Yorker, he had his final studio and store on Fifth Avenue which is where this was purchased in the early 1970s. This 18kt pendant/brooch takes the form of a textured open disk with mixed cut sapphires, emeralds and colorful semi-precious gems. Accompanied by a textured 23" chain which is wearable on its own, as well. 54.7 dwt with chain (85.0 grams). Circa 1973 2 1/4" by 2 3/4" x 1/16"
