VERY RARE SHERMAN PINWHEEL BROOCH IN COLOURS of FUSCIA, CLEAR & OPAQUE JADE GREEN
It has been postulated or believed that the use of such pieces of Sherman jewellery in such striking colours were probably used to draw people inside a jewellery shop. Also I believe that sometimes a Sherman client would ask specifically for special colours in a piece or colours to order to match something.
This is a piece that you will probably only see once in your life or twice if you are particularly lucky. I was testing a new camera (used) I bought some years ago yesterday and thought I would start with this pin as it is so rare. Sherman did not make a lot of pins using that Jade Green so they are hard to come by. All pieces are signed Sherman and these are in perfect condition has a gilded or gold backing.
I got this listing from Mani some years ago as I had to have her bid from the U.S. since the seller was not taking bids from Canada as she was asking U.S. funds and forgot to include Canada in taking bids, people from Canada hence could not see the listing. I tried for some photos to show the 4 tier brooch from different angles, to get some depth. The pin or brooch made the author of the Sherman Masterpiece book quite envious as she had never seen this colour combo in that style before so I knew I had a rarity !~
Thanks again for Mani's support - without that there would never be the collection that I ended up enjoying so much !~
Also a late addendum to note is that this brooch will not fit in 98% of the Sherman boxes that you will find out there. It takes one that is higher than most and does not come up as often for sale. This 4 tier brooch has the height that gives it the drama !~
