Hilda Kraus Sterling Silver Rutilated Quartz Modernist Brooch

About

Modernist sterling silver and rutilated quartz brooch created by enamelist and jeweler, Hilda Kraus. Brooch measures 1 3/4" by 2 1/4" and is signed Hilda Kraus, Sterling. In very good vintage condition. The following was taken from the Brookfield Craft Center website which held a retrospective exhibit on the artist in 2017: Hilda Kraus was a mid-century modern craftsman known for her beautifully designed jewelry, enameled metalwork boxes and decorative items. She was a long-time resident of Westport, Connecticut and taught at the Silvermine Arts Center, the Brookfield Craft Center, and the Stamford Museum. Her work is in the collections of the Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse; the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, New York; and the Delaware Art Museum, Wilmington. In 1946, her work was featured in an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art called Modern Handmade Jewelry, one of the earliest and most influential jewelry exhibitions in the postwar period. She was also awarded a purchase prize in the seminal exhibition Enamels ’70 organized by the Craft Alliance of St. Louis.
