This RARE, vintage, 1951, CoroCraft, Rhinestone, OWLS, Duette, fur clips, brooch. CoroCraft was Coro's high end line and this piece is signed CoroCraft. I see other OWLS Duette brooches that have the enamel bodies but I rarely see this one with the baguette rhinestone bodies designed by Adolph Katz.It is in really nice condition with no missing stones and no metal loss. Each fur clip measures 1.5 inches tall. I show the fur clips separated and the brooch together and both next to US Quarters to help you gauge the sizes.
The last two photos in the series of photos are from the wonderful book "Collecting Costume Jewelry 202" by Julia C. The photos show the Design patent drawing and number which is 165334, and a photo of the Duette brooch. These photos are included in this listing for reference and valuation purposes.
In the next paragraph I will include some information about this Vintage Jewelry Designer for you. As usual, I show lots of photos for you so please view all photos for a true indication of the exact condition of this RARE CoroCraft beauty.Now a little bit of information about this vintage Designer for you: Coro began making jewelry in 1901 in New York. In the 1930s and 40s Coro was one of the largest producers of costume jewelry, so the array of styles and designs available for the Coro collector is vast. In 1937 COROCRAFT was used to mark more high-end Coro designs. Later, in 1944, VENDOME was created, the very top-of-the-line Coro jewelry. All 3 brands are highly collected in todays costume jewelry market.
