Vintage Schreiner Jelly Belly Orange Lucite Dome Faceted Brooch, circa 1960’s-1970’s
Haute Orange oval high dome lucite cabochon sets off this fabulous Schreiner brooch. The oval orange cabochon is further brought out by tiny dusty blue round chatons and square gunmetal faceted cut stones that both surround the decorative bezel which holds that orange bad boy.
In many of Schreiner’s pieces he set his stones purposely on the wrong side. This gave his pieces not only a unique look but when playing jewelry detective to figure out when an unsigned piece was made or by whom gives the “jewelry detective” aka me, a clue. Schreiner did several different color combos of this brooch which can be found in the recently published book Schreiner by Carole Tanenbaum and Eve Townsend…..just sayin’
