Large handmade modernist sterling and rose quartz pin by Sam Kramer, the famous NYC silversmith, c.1948. As usual, one can turn the pin in several directions trying to find the "correct" position - is it a fish wriggling through the water, or a profile with a pony tail, or should we not ask these questions? This large and dimensional piece, measures 3" long by 2 1/4" wide. It curves up and down and has a center oval rose quartz bezel set stone. The pin is in excellent condition, but the stone has a close to the surface fissure that has slightly come to the surface. It is signed "STERLING mushroom mark". Great piece and have not seen this one before.....$25 for insured USA shipping plus appicable NY tax.
