This is possibly my fave Sherman brooch (at the moment). It's a domed green-peridot-AB teal starburst brooch. I think I've only seen this design once before, and then it was in different colours, so I was very chuffed to find this one.
The brooch bears a rectangular Sherman cartouche with script, while the (clipback) earrings are unmarked. All three were sold at my local thrift shop after coming in as part of an estate donation, which is why I am reasonably certain the original owner bought them as a set.
If anyone has an idea of age, I'd love to hear. I've heard that the oval cartouche is 1950s while the square cartouche is 1960s, but I've no idea if that's actually true!
