I found this beautiful Yellow and Amber Rhinestone Flower unmarked Brooch, at the Flea Market today 02/15/2020, in a Carl-Art Jewelry Box, and every piece of Carl-Art Jewelry that I saw when searching, was marked with the Arrow through a CA mark, so is this a Carl-Art 12k Gold Filled Rhinestone Brooch, or just a beautiful Rhinestone Flower Brooch, in a Carl-Art Box? :^D
Founder (s): Providence RI, USA 1936 or 1937 - the 1980s -This company made sterling silver, gold over sterling and gold filled jewelry. They also manufactured 14k gold chains at some point. Most of the jewelry manufactured was dainty, but well made and of innovative design. Rhinestones were used in some of the designs. There is a great article on Carl- Art in the publication Vintage Fashion and Costume Jewelry, Vol.15, NO3, 2005. This article was written by Cheri Van Hoover who is also a fellow member of the Jewel Collect forum. Signature Designs: Sterling, gold over sterling retro looks, dainty.
Thank you for looking, any comments, or information about this Rhinestone Brooch are welcome! :^)
