Gorgeous vintage brooch. This Sarah Coventry Autumn Haze pineapple brooch is in good vintage condition and looks good enough to eat! The brooch features a large amber glass chunk topped with prickly gold tone leaves. there is a very tiny chip at the bottom front of the brooch which I only noticed on the close up photos – it is not easy to spot when worn.
The back of the brooch is gold tone with a strong rollover clasp and also a hook so that it can also be worn as a pendant. The brooch is signed SARAHCOV with a Copyright symbol.
It dates from 1964.
The brooch weighs 20 grams and measures 5 cm x 3.5 cm.
Presented in a beautiful satin drawstring bag.
Despite the ‘designer’ name Sarah Coventry vintage costume jewellery is not made by one designer. Sarah Coventry was the name of a company based in the US (1949 – 1980s) who had emigrated from Coventry in England, UK. They employed different designers to produce their jewellery. They adopted a method similar to Avon in that they used house parties to sell their ranges “for the woman who dares to be different.” Some pieces are made in Canada or the UK.
