RARE FRANCISCO REBAJES EMBOSSED COPPER FACE PIN
Amusing, embossed copper face pin by Francisco Rebajes. I'm calling this piece rare as I have never seen it before, unlike many other Rebajes designs. It has original dark patina. As outlined in the excellent book, Copper Art Jewelry, A Different Lustre by Burkholz and Kaplan: "Rebajes is the first name in copper art jewelry. A craftsman, designer, artist and entrepreneur. Francisco Rebajes created metal art and costume jewelry from the 1930s through the 1950s. He achieved material success as well as artistic recognition. Rebajes' strikingly beautiful jewelry designs successfully bridge different cultures and artistic worlds. The scope of his artistic achievement is attested by his inclusion in museum exhibitions and collections. His success as a businessman is demonstrated by his million-dollar retail shop first in Greenwich Village, and eventually on New York's prestigious Fifth Avenue." The pin measures 2 1/4 inches by 2 inches. Signed: "Rebajes". Very good original condition.

RUTH BUOL ENAMELED PIN WITH GLASS COOKIES

RUTH BUOL ENAMELED PIN WITH GLASS COOKIES
Spectacular enameled and fused glass pin by Carmel artist, Ruth Buol. Green enameled background with fused glass millefiori beads and domed glass "cookies". The round glass "cookies" have foiled backgrounds which give them an amazing glow, as if they are electrified. The effect is impossible to capture in a photo. Signed on the back: "Buol" though the signature is partially covered by the heavy glaze. Buol started making enamel jewelry in the early 1950s in Connecticut and later moved to California where she continued creating her expressive designs for department stores and private clients. Sometimes her work is signed "Buol," or simply "B," and in later years she used paper stickers that said "Buol's Jewels" - sometimes on the sticker she hand wrote her title for each piece, such as "Mermaid's Tears" or "Sapphires in Bed." Buol gained nationwide attention when she wrote an in-depth article for "Craft Horizons" magazine in 1953 describing her artistic process. In recent years, Buol's work has become recognized and collectible, having been exhibited at the art museum MONA in Nebraska. Her creations are often compared to the work of enamel artists Andree Bazot and Kay Denning. Pin measures 2 3/4 inches by 1 3/4 inches. Excellent condition. $235 Order #J101208
