Huge Spectacular Art Deco Fruit Salad Clip Brooch
This is a jewel you'll be noticed in, even across the room: a totally devastating "Carmen Miranda, eat your heart out" brooch 2 3/4" tall, almost as wide and studded with faceted crystals in red, green, amber, blue and violet. Besides wearing it in the usual way, it would look great on a ribbon as a choker necklace.

The gilded, slightly concave backing - intricately detailed with grapes, leaves and a foo-foo border - is light and easy to wear on any fabric. The material must be wood or early plastic and condition is great, with only slight age-appropriate wear to the gilding on outer edges and not much of that. All rhinestones are as vividly colorful as the day there were made and the hinged clip is in perfect working order. Probable dating would be 1930s and provenance is (bet you guessed it) a California estate.
