This is a lovely 1950s vintage rhinestone brooch with a three-tier flower design that I am fairly confident is by Schreiner, based on the unusual colours, variety of stone sizes/cuts and “hook and eye” construction. The way small round cuts fill the gaps between the ovals also seems “very Schreiner”.
Altogether there are five colours ranging from amber to lime green, in five sizes and three cuts. They are all prong-set and foil-backed, and have been cleverly chosen and placed so that the colours on one tier melt beautifully into the next. The yellow navettes on the second tier are two-tone with amber-tinged ends, and light catches the inner yellow halves very prettily creating a ring of light that you can half see at the top in the first pic below. The lime colour navetted below are also subtly two-tone, with slightly darker ends.
The tiers are joined by hooks and eyes (rings on one tier hooked through eyes on the next) and the setting is a slightly matte silvertone. The brooch is 1 5/8″ (4.2 cm) in diameter with a rollover safety clasp. It is not dazzlingly sparkly – it has a soft more liquidy sparkle from the lovely play of light and colour.
It is in very good to excellent vintage condition with only a very small dark spot on the seeting edge and a slightly bent pin tip (it passes easily through fabric without snagging). Through the loupe, one of the oval ambers has a couple of miniscule “burst bubble” type dips in its surface from when it was made, mentioned for accuracy and not noticeable. Otherwise the brooch has no damage or flaws – the vulnerable navette tips are unchipped and the foil backings are bright and intact.
