Maxwell Chayat Brooch - American Modernist - Single Pearl
Rare Maxwell Chayat Sterling Silver and pearl brooch. This piece came out of an estate which had originally purchased each of the pieces directly from Chayat in 1963-65. This brooch reminds me of a single spring flower. Rare and fantastic piece of wearable art.
Chayat's work is in private collections and synagogues across the world. His work has been shown at the Smithsonian Institution, Cooper Union, the Jewish Museum of New York and the Newark Museum.
Measures 1.5" in diameter Signed "Chayat Sterling" Good vintage condition with minor wear and original heavy patina.
