    My mother passed away 10 years ago. My siblings and I had to clean her apartment, and they had me take all her jewelry. I got home and stored all the jewelry boxes in a big box in a closet, and forgot about it. I am doing some de-cluttering, and came across all this jewelry. Some of it was my mothers, some my grandmothers, and some my great grandmothers. I have been researching jewelry, and with all the sites that sell Coro jewelry, I cannot find any information on this brooch. It has the square Coro name with the pegasus outside the square. Can anyone give me any info on how old this brooch is? I am trying to decide which woman it belonged to. Thank you!!!

      Your brooch can date anywhere from right after WWII up until 1979. Not possible to narrow it down any further.

      Coro / Corocraft (Circa 1901-1990)

      Jewelry designers Emanuel Cohn and Gerald Rosenberg first began producing Coro/Corocraft jewelry c. 1901; although not until Costume Jewelry was introduced in the late 1920s, did Coro/Corocraft begin producing that genre of jewelry. Coro/Corocraft produced a large quantity of costume jewelry of all types over the years including matching sets (parures-most popular in the 1950s), brooches, earrings, and necklaces. They designed and produced figural and jelly-belly jewelry as well, and used a variety of materials in their jewelry including Mexican silver; gold and silver vermeil; glass stones; rhinestones; and aurora borealis stones (after 1955).

      Coro/Corocraft had a number of different marks, the most common of which was the “Coro” signature mark which was etched in script. The “Coro-craft” hyphenated mark was used after 1937 for their higher quality pieces. Another mark – “Corocraft” – was used from 1945-1947. Other Coro/Corocraft marks included “Sterling Craft Coro” (1942) for vermeil pieces, and “Coro Sterling” and the “Pegasus” mark used after WWII. This does not make it easy to date vintage Coro/Corocraft jewelry with complete accuracy as some of the marks were used simultaneously. Coro ceased production of all of their jewelry in 1979, except for the Coro operation in Canada which continued to operate until 1990.

      The design looks 1940s to me? But Im no expert, just my personal guess.
