    Just wanted to add an early pinwheel set. This is post 1955, however: see the all over AB. Like other recently-discovered early Sherman items that are not in the possession of the original family, and in original cases, this set has some gold plate issues — not a lot, but they are there. The plating is not very shiny on, especially, the brooch. But this isn’t a “worn out” set. This set is quite large, but definitely not as large as Sherman pinwheels would later become. The brooch pin and earring clips indicate this set would be worn as shown in Photo 2, on the oak desktop. This is a set that I wear often. Those earrings just about cover half of my ears. September 13, 2021.

    Brooch — 2 1/2”
    Earrings — 1 1/2”

      Very lovely early brooch. The gold tone pieces seem to show some wear much easier than the rhodium pieces, however never detracts from the sparkle of the crystals. The earrings are quite showy, nearly same size as your brooch. Nice to hear the set is worn by you and enjoyed.

      Thank you, Dawnlady1 for your comments. I agree, some of the older goldtone I have seen is as you say. The ear clips on this set are among the most comfortable I have ever owned. At first wearing, I thought the earrings were just too visible, because of their size. But they’re not really; and they’re half hidden under my hair, as well. (Interestingly, I have a beautiful sort of heavy seawater blue earring that is equal to this earring set. Just one though. Ha.) Thank you.
