These scatter pins are a neat blast from the past when mushrooms were a fashion statement in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It is nice to find these pins still together as a set.The design is elegant and sophisticated and although they are not signed, I believe they were made by DeNicola.
DeNicola had a patented method of micro-crystalline gold texturing that is unlike any other designer. The caps on the mushroom have a fine micro sand texture of encrusted gold. This texturing on the caps is 18kt gold plated. The rest of the mushroom is yellow gold gilt over brass. The caps have a wave or hat like shape and underneath you can see the rib like structure of the mushroon; under the cap and on the stem.
The pins are petite and each measures 1" tall x 1" wide. Both have the original fine working safety clasps and both are in pristine excellent condition with no signs of wear or other imperfections. The pins are not signed.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new presentation jewelry box.
