    The box is probably 7 or so inches wide and is the largest that Sherman ever made.

    This brooch I was lucky enough to buy from the author of Sherman Masterpiece collection, Sandra Caldwell. It was used in principal photography for the book and Sandra gave me an affidavit to say so. It is hard to find these pinwheel brooches anywhere and they are highly sought after. I photographed it to show the height and the tiered construction with the tiny stones crowning the top.

    Almost all of the Sherman boxes that you find are black and will not accomodate the height of this magnificent design. The beautiful pink brocade box shown is actually high enough and will fit these masterepieces and I brought up that the brooch is pretty much a perfect pinwheel design to the author. Its close to 3 inches wide but if you count the number of tiers in height you realize that it was the biggest or largest brooch Sherman ever made !~

      Wowza, what a splendid beauty! Phil this brooch is a mountain of gorgeousness, the overhead shot is really jaw dropping, Mr Sherman went all out on this multi tiered creation and I congratulate you on getting this from the Masterpiece author (I have a signed copy of this book still packed away, one of my fave coffee table books, the beauty inside is only rivalled by your own fab Sherman collection). Much joy to you with this treasure and thank you so much for sharing this magnificent beauty with us :)

      I prefer “pinwheel” design when describing this masterpiece. The other name is degrading, as that is something that doesn’t belong in regard to Sherman jewelry.
      That being said, you have done it again Phil!
      Delighting us with pieces most would never see! Absolutely stunning 4- tier “pinwheel with wonderful color combo! Wow, there are over 50 slims in this piece and I love the small cluster at the top!
    6. valentino97 valentino97, 2 years ago
      I prefer pinwheel description too. It's so gorgeous. Also love seeing it in original gift box. Lovely!!

      Truly a masterpiece. Have never seen this brooch other than in the book, “Sherman, The Masterpiece Collection” — which is this exact brooch. May I please ask if you think this colour combination was a special order. Thank you.

      What an unusual and truly luscious colour combination. It seems Gustav Sherman was forever breathing new life into classic designs through his amazing choice of rhinestone colours and AB coatings. I think this is one reason I never, ever tire of looking at his work. Thank you for sharing this truly stunning piece (and P.S. that box itself is a real beauty!).

      It’s been a while Phil...

      Thank you Evelyn,back in hosp as you know by now !
    19. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 1 year ago
      Hi Phil!
      Who’s Evelyn?
      And how were the truffles? ( my favorite chocolate!)
      You were supposed to received both deliveries on the same day.
      That is how Leanne set it up, but the florist messed up.
      Leanne is such a dear, and I hope you enjoyed them.
      Wishing you good health my friend!

      Hi Eileen, I am sorry. Evelyn was a super dear friend, still obsessed with her, she died in 2004. I still believe I got a call from her the day she died but by the time I called back, she was gone. In this hosp I finally got online after about 30 tries. It is extremely hard, as the site says they are not supporting internet, but when I finally get through, I finally forget what I wanted to do. Even typing is too difficult as with the touch type you have to push hard and even then often misses letters. Only online because I GET bored. most people here including the nurses and mobility staff did not know you could do games I found out. I tried to mention in my other replies how hard it is to work on a site which is not developed & is not meant for patients to be on. Anyway I did try two truffles and l loved them, but not supposed to eat them here.
    21. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 1 year ago
      Actually now for 2 days I have got online in morning, otherwise evenings is too difficult.
    22. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 1 year ago
      Boy, do I feel like a chump. I just thought you just misspelled my name. My apologies, dear friend. The internet sounds dreadful, and I commend you for at least trying to stay in touch, especially when you’re not feeling your best, as we all miss you so. Wishing you a speedy recovery!
    23. Daisy1000 Daisy1000, 1 year ago
      I second Eileen’s greeting. Wishing you a good recovery, as well, Phil. Home and privacy and your own technology is going to look so sweet to you. <3
