Mid Century Modern 900 Silver Brutalist Agate Duff Brooch
* * SOLD * *
A large 900 silver brooch with an amazing irregular surface. This brutalist jewel is highly detailed with organic textures— one side is dense and solid with overlapping, interjecting linear shapes; the other is lacier and open, with a pierced appearance. The surface reminds me a little of the moon, or of a forest floor littered with needles and duff. An earthy, lightly-banded, agate cabochon is bezel set in the rough center of this brooch. Brooch edges are wavy . . . sculptural. This is a studio piece, and is very likely one of a kind. Unmarked. Weight is significant. Closure is an older two-eared safety catch.
Excellent. Original patina.
Measures 56.2 mm wide x 47.2 mm tall. Agate measures 14.2 mm (on the longest side).
