This is the first time I have bought any American Art and craft jewellery, I've never really came across it before. As soon as I saw this brooch I thought it was lovely. I love the organic feel to it, with the Lovely large Turquoise and the green enamel 3D leaves surround, and the pretty pearl flowers and the tiny pearls below the middle flower, not forgetting the drop pearl. It is 14kt assay and makers mark. The matrix Turquoise is 16mm x 12mm and measures 25mm x 39mm and weighs approx 8.3 grams.
I've tried to find out some back ground information about these people, there isn't very much, this is what I've found.
The company was set up in New Jersey by Achill Bippart in 1886 and traded under the name Bippart & co.
Achill Bippart, was born in Eisenach, Saxony, he came to the United States when he was fourteen years of age, and learned his trade as a jeweller in Providence R.I. In 1880 he took up residence in Newark, and he made his home there.
Benjamin F Grisham joined the company in 1893. Bennett Osborn, jr became a member of the company in 1897.
Many thanks for looking

    Agree with all. I think the color combo here works so well. It softens the look, if you will. Beautiful.
