Coro Ebony & Gold Blackamoor Warrior Vintage Figural Brooch - RARECoro, Corocraft
Coro Ebony & Gold Blackamoor Warrior Vintage Figural Brooch - RARE. In excellent condition - an interesting and beautiful Coro find. The signature indicates this piece was manufactured in the late 1950s, early 1960s. The highly-detailed warrior measures 2 inches tall by 1 1/4 inches wide. It is a delicate brooch for 2 inches tall with very clear detail in gold plate. The brooch was purchased as part of a Rice-Weiner, Coro, Fred Block lot of Movie Tie-In jewelry. Best guess - the Michael Cane movie Zulu; it was a big release and the timing is right. Zulus once wore turaco feathers as headdresses and the weapons and apparel for the era seem correct so maybe. Search as I might, I have never seen this brooch again or any other that could be part of a set. The pin back is straight and strong, the clasp locks securely.
