    Love Art jewelry. 2" across. I wish I saw more Art jewelry. I really like collecting brooches, also. I didn't know you have to write 100 characters worth of description, and I don't know what to say. What would you like to know? Oh wait, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you!

      The attention to detail on this fine brooch is anything short of amazing!
      I love the tiny "turquoise" cabochons that really pop out against the beautiful " carvings" in the gold set. And I see a bail if wanting to wear as a pendant, always a plus!
      I love everything about it!
      Lovely find! Well done!

      WoW - just Wow! The best Maltese Cross I've seen in a very long while. The workman/workwomanship is just amazing. Complicated metal patterns. Beautiful.

      Beautiful Maltese Cross.
      Here what you can find on this manufacturer.

      Offering high quality jewelry with an emphasis on medieval & renaissance styles, Arthur Pepper was in business from the late 1940's making jewelry signed Mode Art, and later, ART(c). The heyday of this company came during the 1960's when they produced for us dozens of interpretations of ethnic Asian figural fashion jewelry, Egyptian revival large metal pectorals, Maltese crosses, and an entire line of jewelry with delightful small enameled flowers. Most collectible besides the Christmas tree pins are the Maltese crosses and the enameled daisy jewels; but the hardest to find pieces are decadent rhinestone sets that are very similar to Florenza jewelry. This fashion jewelry is now all vintage. Prices of jewelry signed ART(c) will only continue to rise.

      Alan thanks for the info about the company. I knew the principal was Arthur Pepper but didn't know about the Mode Art signature. Something new to look for! I do love his stuff.
