Rare Rafael Alfandary Portrait Brooch - Sterling Silver - Garnet
Rare Rafael Alfandary brooch made out of Sterling Silver with a small solitaire garnet.
This piece was most likely made when Rafael moved to Texas during the 1980's. This is a highly unusual and developed piece by Alfandary. A self portrait with inlayed lines of brass and copper accented by a garnet bezel set in the mouth.
The back of the piece can be worn as a brooch, pendant or on a bolo.
This piece is from my personal collection. Rare and unique.
Measures approx. 2" tall x 2" wide Signed "Rafael 925" Good vintage condition with heavy patina and minor surface wear. This could be polished up nicely.
