    This was a piece that I had previously posted. I was looking at jewelry patents for another piece and came across this one. It is identical to the piece I have, but mine does not have any marks on back. So, my question is if Coro ever had any unmarked pieces or is this just a really good copy?

      Absolutely Coro! IMHO
      I have read that there were more unsigned pieces than signed! You did wonderful research Mrs.T. The company sent out unsigned pieces on cards or boxes with the logo. Not everything has to be signed to be valued. In this case, your instincts were right on. Congrats!

      This is so pretty- the deep olive green and the lovely bell shaped flower are gorgeous. There's also so much nice details in this- the little dangling pieces and the leaves are perfect too

      Yes, Coro had unsigned pieces. Not many were unsigned, but when you can find a patent, that's the strong evidence of the design's pedigree.

      Gorgeous bell flower MrsT, the round green cabs are so lovely. Possibly mark has worn off as well over time, this can happen with very old Coro pieces

      Plein and Crystal seem to have diff bits of knowledge regarding whether Coro used marks often or not so often!
    6. Ms.CrystalShip Ms.CrystalShip, 4 months ago
      I stand corrected. Maureen is right. It was CORO Craft that had more unsigned than signed, according to what I read. Not CORO...

      Thanks to everyone for your input on this piece. Like I said, I just stumbled on this patent picture and saw that it was just like mine. Either way, whether Coro or just a copy, I love this one. Online, all I could find was the patent picture, I did not see any examples of other brooches just like this one signed or otherwise. Thanks again!

      Just one word. Beautiful!

      Super gorgeous brooch. Unfortunately Coro didn't sign. This piece is an exact match to the one shown in the patent

      Gorgeous, the one on the page looks identical!
    11. Mrstyndall Mrstyndall, 3 months ago
      Thanks for all the great comments and the loves!

      This is so gorgeous - one of my favorite brooches on CW!
