Vintage Signed Mode-Art Brooch circa 1955-1970s Arthur Pepper New York
ModeArt Jewellery was started by Arthur Pepper in New York in the 1940s. Pieces were mass produced but of good quality, and moderately priced, sold mainly in department stores across the US. The company remained in business until the 1970s.
This unusual gold tone brooch is in good vintage condition. Please see photographs for details, there is a slight chip on the faux pearl at the centre, only noticeable on close inspection. It has a standard roll-over safety clasp in good working order. The © symbol on the signature dates this piece to 1955 or later.
Has been put through an ultrasonic jewellery cleaner for hygiene.
