Vintage Ornate Gunmetal Gothic Victorian Revival Brooch by Florenza, circa 1960
This rare silver tone brooch by Florenza, circa 1960, is an ornate piece inspired by the Victorian era. The rich gunmetal tone and heft of this piece make it a very unique piece of vintage costume jewelry from the coveted brand Florenza. A wonderful addition to your vintage jewelry collection! ABOUT FLORENZA Daniel Kasoff, the founder of Florenza, had a very serendipitous entry into the costume jewelry industry. In the late 1920's, his coat was stolen while he was dining at a restaurant. Another diner, Mr. Speier, felt bad for him and gave him some money to buy a new coat. Kasoff repaid Mr. Speier quickly, which impressed Mr. Speier so much that he offered him a job at his company, the Speier Costume Jewelry Company. Dan worked for Mr. Speier for 10 years, learning the business and honing his talent for design. In 1937, he opened his own costume jewelry company in New York - the Dan Kasoff Corporation. In 1950, he changed the company's name to Florenza in honor of his wife, Florence. Dan Kasoff‘s designs were very distinctive. His creations had an Old World look influenced by Victorian Revival and Renaissance styles. Florenza used the finest stones from Germany, Austria and the East, with many stones being made specially for the brand. Florenza jewelry was constructed using high-quality workmanship, materials, and designs. DETAILS: - Approx 2.5" in diameter - Silver / gunmetal tone - Safety catch pin fastening - Signed Florenza on verso - Circa 1960 CONDITION: Good vintage condition, wear commensurate with age and use. Ready to be worn and enjoyed immediately.
