Rare Canadian Sherman Japanned, Topaz, Citrine, & AB Brooch, Necklace, & Earrings Parure Set Circa 1960 obtained 2015.
The japanned back is pure gunmetal black, in Mint condition, some say minty !~
For years I did not like this brooch much due to color and AB stones. Lately I have come to appreciate more the incredible design in this largest I believe of all the Sherman brooches that he made. This design is featured prominently in the Sherman Book. There are also 2 very similar brooches in smaller sizes shown in "Multiples Section" where they show some of the color variety in a collection of the same brooch.
Some have once conjectured that with the twink of a stone on the strobe lit dance floor, that contact with ET was imminent with this brooch. But seriously, I do not get into any of those head trips !!~
