1980s Modernist Ciner Brooch Gold Plated Signed Joanne Cooper VFG


Brand Etsy

This is beautiful quality modernist brooch designed by Joanne Cooper for Ciner of New York. This brooch is made in a bow-like upside down V shape. It is gold plated and features beautiful shine - I believe that they used 18k gold plating. It is quite heavy and of obvious high quality.
Age: 1980s - the Ciner mark in capital serif lettering began to be used during the 1980s. Ciner was founded in 1892 as a fine jeweller, but began production of quality costume jewelry during the early 1930s, basing their designs on fine jewelry.
Signature: J. Cooper. Joanne Cooper produced a number of modernist designs for Ciner
Size: The brooch measures 3 1/8 in width across the bottom and has a height of 2 1/4.
Condition: It is in excellent condition with no noted wear.
Ciner is highly appreciated for the quality of their jewelry - advertised in Vogue magazine and sold at the best stores, and worn by fashion icons such as Elizabeth Taylor, who was a lifelong collector. This is a beautifully made brooch - fabulous modernist form with the appearance of high end jewellery
