    This post includes a photo of the (pink) Sherman Starfish I wrote about in my reply to Eileen’s recent starfish discovery. Eileen, essentially, requested the completion of this post. Smiles. I have included several additional starfish to show the subtle variations that (I know of that) Sherman made in design of this brooch. Especially interesting is the prong variation — comparing those surrounding the central stones, the pale navettes on the light AB starfish, the marquis stones on the pink and japanned black starfish.

    I have definitely seen some, quite beautiful, even quite substantial, unsigned Sherman. I am interested in what others know about Sherman unsigned pieces — including when the decision was made to sign and not.

    Brooch Size: 2” x 2”.

      Gorgeous starfish brooches! I think my blue signed Sherman starfish brooch posted a couple yrs ago is similar in shape to your pink one, also in silvertone & with curved ends. Love your pink one!

      All are lovely starfish. Can anyone read what's on the back of the Jappened one? Apologies to the Sherman, but I think it's my favourite.

      I am going to search for your blue starfish, Newfld. I have never seen a blue one. Want to see it.
      Thank you for kind comments, Broochman. I do like the Starfish design. The way the light hits the stones results in a lot of sparkle.

      It just says “Sherman,” Gillian. Not a great photo, I guess.

      Always nice to see Sherman pieces in different colours, sometimes if you're really lucky you find one in a very rare colour combo.

      Thanks for your comment, Phil. I’ll post again in a bit.

      These are all beautiful!
      I especially like the black one with the japanned backing.
      When you look at the back of the pink one in rhodium plating, the skill of the maker is evident! Look how all the outer chatons are grouped together. ( not figure 8’s, as D & E had groups of 2 & 3 done) This whole grouping is together, as I count 6!
      Work perfection!
      Thanks Leanne, can’t wait to see some more Sherman treasures!

      Thanks, Eileen. So learning stone names from your posts.
