Stuart Nye Leaf Brooch, Classic Sterling Silver Brooch, Vintage 1960s Signed NYE, Etched Ivy Leaf Brooch
Classic Ivy leaf brooch by Stuart Nye of North Carolina. The Nye company has been producing hand-made jewelery based on nature since 1933. This design appears in their cataloge as "maple leaf" , though it resembles an American sycamore or plane tree also. The lobed and serrated leaf is gently convex, with a pinched and folded stem. Hand-incised lines indicate ribs and veins. The back is stamped Nye Sterling, with the name in the company's cloverleaf logo.
