Vintage Hammerman Bros 14K Yellow Gold, Enamel & Seed Pearl Four-Leaf Clover Brooch Set of Two #c781
This is a superb and rare pair of two 14k gold and enamel four-leaf clover pins from Hammerman Brothers! 

The Hammerman Brothers jewelry company of New York was founded in 1946 by Benjamin, Hyman and Bernard Hammerman. After returning from World War II, they went into the jewelry business together and established a reputation for creating fine, high-quality precious metal and gemstone jewelry. This family-run company remains in business today.

Matching brooches like this pair are often referred to as lingerie or honeymoon pins. The pins are constructed of fine 14K yellow gold, white seed pearls and enamel. They have an Art Nouveau style and are shaped like four-leaf clovers with pretty curved stems. The leaves of the clovers are enameled in a light green color with darker green veins running through them. The pins are three-dimensional, and with the exquisite green veining of the leaves, they appear quite realistic. Each clover is accented with a beautiful white seed pearl in the center. The curved stems are finished in a smooth gold as is the back of each pin. The pins close with old style C clasps. They are absolutely stunning!

Each brooch measures about 7/8 inch long and 7/16 inch wide. They are signed "HB" for Hammerman Brothers (the letter H is partially obscured on one pin) and hallmarked "14K" on the back of each pin. The combined weight of the pair is 2.6 grams.

These brooches are absolutely gorgeous! They look fabulous worn on a suit lapel and would also look stunning worn at the neckline of a pretty blouse. They would make an outstanding addition to a fine vintage jewelry collection and a superb gift for a collector. The pins are in excellent vintage condition and have been very well cared for. They have only the very slightest of enamel wear along the edges of some of the clover leaves. This is not noticeable and doesn't detract from the beauty of these exceptional gems!
