Sherman Masterpiece, Pinwheel pin, Green and Topaz, Japanned Back, Signed - the largest they made apparently.
Earlier this new year,2016, I went on to the site of the book Sherman Jewellery, The Masterpiece Collection and bought this pin that was pictured in her book on page 99 and one other page with multiples of other colors.
This one is Topaz and Green which is a rare combination and the size and style of this pin is rare also. It was used and pictured in the book and she was selling it so I stepped up to the rather large price, as I know I would not find another one for sale. The pin is actually too big for the smaller Sherman boxes that I own, it is much too high, as it has 4+ levels to it, very intricately set stones ! The piece will fit in the large Sherman box only.

The last picture is from the book and shows the pin in situ. It is in the green jewellery section, as that is a rare colour for Sherman. This represents what seems to be my finest pin that I have, looking much like picture 3 and 4. I was very happy to get this pin. It is also has a Japanned black back. Jan. 12, 2016

    No wonder Sherman are considered the greatest costume jewellery designers.

    The green cabochon bracelet above the brooch is no slouch, either. :)

    Such a gorgeous brooch! I would love to know who bought these. Arabian princesses, Elizabeth Taylor, Joan Crawford worn at a Pepsi board meeting?

    This brooch was in the collection of Sandra Caldwell and is a book piece. It was the actual piece photographed for the book and I have an afidavit saying that it was and sold to me.
