The loveliest miniature flower brooch by the notable American jewelers Whiteside & Blank. This flower form is gracefully supine— the petals are masterfully sculpted using repoussé and chasing techniques, and the low parts of each petal are detailed with soft, matte-black enamel. The center of the flower is set with a single natural pearl. This brooch is made with little loops on the backside through which a fine chain can be run— it wears beautifully as a pendant on a short chain. Framework is strong, precise and beautiful. Hallmarked 14k and marked with Whiteside & Blank's crescent moon and arrow.
