Adolph Katz, as Chief Designer for CORO spring-summer collection in 1944, created this sterling silver , rhinestone & enamel Rock Fish Brooch. Most notably by Roberto Brunialti in "American Costume Jewelry: Art & Industry, Vol. 1".
The bright fuscia rhinestone eyes contrast beautifully with the large faceted aqua (or referred to as azure) glass stone in his mouth. This is complimented by the touches of pink and blue enamel on his gills and tail. Patterned scales on his body of vermeil. Clear rhinestones. Locking c-clasp closure and is marked "Sterling Corocraft" with a Pegasus on a rectangular cartouche. He measures a large 3" x 2 1/4". This belonged to my mother.
