This wonderful Olive Commons Cameona brooch is a rare/ scarce platinum palm ware brooch, painted in a special process using platinum. This lovely Florida scene is painted with fine detail including a palm tree and lush tropical scenery, and is signed in the reverse by her with OC in platinum as well. The Porcelain and painting are in wonderful condition, and mounted in a sterling mounting, but the brooch does need a pinstem. The closure itself is working and moves and swivels correctly.
The frame is marked sterling and I have taken a few closeup photos included as well. The brooch measures approximately 2 inches wide by 1 1/4 inches high. I read that Olive received an award at the 1939 world's fair for her Platinum Palm Ware. This is such a beautiful and hard to find piece of Olive Commons art.
