Swoboda unsigned blackamoor pin brooch is one that I personally acquired from Nate Waxman, himself, in the late 1990s or early 2000s with a group of Swoboda pins which we used to carry, but they have been sold for many years. This is one I had put away for myself and have never worn. Culling it from my personal collection was not easy, but I simply cannot wear everything in spite of the fact that I always want to wear it all! LOL
The blackamoor face tests as black tourmaline on my Gemlogis tester. This regal lady wears two genuine emerald earrings peridot, genuine pearls, turquoise and coral as well as garnet. Upon close inspection, I was surprised to find that this particular pin was unsigned. Also, on the back of the pin, an errant extra garnet was glued on the back. I tried to pull on it to see how strong the glue bond is and I cannot remove it. It doesn't affect the appearance of the front of the pin, so it is just an extra goodie for the lucky new owner of this beautiful blackamoor pin / brooch.
It measures the standard 2-1/4 x 1-3/4" and has a safety closure.
This is wonderful, unsigned Swoboda blackamoor pin / brooch that is encrusted with amazing semiprecious stones and pearls. The fetching blackamoor image will be a cherished piece of vintage costume jewelry that will definitely pass the heirloom test with its genuine stones!
