1950s Vintage Christian Dior by Kramer Silver Wreath Brooch

The Kramer company of New York made jewellery for Christian Dior's American market for only a few years in the 1950s.  This metal mesh brooch is in terrific condition, especially given its age.  The brooch is of a modernist design with sleek lines of rhodium plated silver tone metal forming a ring or wreath.  

It's in excellent condition without any dents.  The metal is in great condition and the roll clasp functions well. 

It measures approximately 4.5cm across.

It is signed 'CHRISTIAN DIOR BY KRAMER' on a plaque attached to the back of the brooch.

Kramer NY formed in the mid 1940s and was run by the three Kramer brothers. They favoured floral designs, glass enamelling and plenty of sparkle.  In the 1950s and 1960s Kramer collaborated with Christian Dior to produce top quality jewellery for the fashion house, so you can be sure that anything produced by Kramer was of the highest quality.  Unfortunately the company closed in the 1970s.

How do you rate the condition of a piece?

Excellent - No visible flaws to note but items may exhibit some signs of age related wear
Very Good - Some visible flaws which aren't considered to impair the wearability of the piece
Good - Some more notable flaws but the piece is still in collectible condition

All items are vintage and have lived a previous life, therefore signs of age related wear are to be expected. I do my best to bring attention to any faults in the description and by using the condition scale.
