RARE SHERMAN GREEN & AMBER LARGE PINWHEEL BROOCH & RARE PINK SHERMAN LARGE BOX By Gustave Sherman, Montreal, Canadian Jeweller.
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 !~
