This priceless, beyond rare, original, as good as undamaged & surprisingly heavy solid silver & paste Ciro brooch is an absolute beauty, a central 6 petalled flower is suspended to the center of a classic 6 pointed Russian star, a further 6 large pastes at the end of each prong. So popular & sort after was the brooch that CIRO created a cheaper version with p├ástes, & this is the later release from I think 1959 & would have been a very highly valued & treasured piece in its day. Inspired by the fabulous jewels as worn in pre revolution Russia a classic glorious 6 pronged star & looks astonishing. Beautifully finished throughout with lovely workmanship, as much care going into finishing off the back as to the front. I have been collecting CIRO for years & have rarely seen a better example. There are around 40 high domed pastes, I have gone over these with a tooth comb & there are only a handful of stones which have any nibbles, a minute nibble to side of the central crimped stone, another to one of the larger stones in one of the points, with only near invisible scuffs to one or two further stones. Clearly hand finished throughout, with sublime workmanship, measures exactly 3.7 cm 1.4 in diameter, you can clearly read most of the stamp SCP to the back of the mount & ENGLAND. I have given this only a very light polish, as the back was black & I was desperate to find markings.. There is as good as no sign of wear other than a few of the Zircons having been scuffed, with no repair marks, this is fit for the serious Deco / Retro jewellery collector. The pin having a flip-over safety catch, not sure if the pin is silver (they rarely are being that silver is too soft). This does what it was intended to do, to replicate diamonds & looks simply astonishing under artificial light. (I recommend you measure against other brooches you own to give an idea as to the size).
