Art Deco Citrine Brooch

Art Deco citirne brooch. (J9067)

Art Deco

A dramatic Art Deco brooch set with a beautiful honey-colored Citrine.  The gold sides of the brooch rise up pyramid-like to support the gemstone. They are decorated with a boldly geometric Greek key design.  Crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1930.

The reverse of the brooch is as beautifully crafted as the front.  The elegant simplicity of the design is a hallmark of the Art Deco era.  Note, the sturdy pin stem and transitional safety clasp that help secure the brooch to a blouse or lapel.  These small details indicate the thought and care taken in creating the piece.

On the upper reverse of the brooch, a small plaque records the mark of Hayden W. Wheeler & Company.   The maker's signature (a large "W" enclosing a smaller "H" and "W") is surrounded by a "14" and "K" for the purity of the gold.  Hayden Wheeler was a maker of fine jewelry and watch cases based on Maiden Lane, New York. The firm was in operation from about 1850 to the early 1930s.
