Vintage Ed Levin Modernist Brooch Sterling Silver Amorphic Abstract Pin
The fluid and atomic style lines of studio jeweler and silversmith Ed Levin, are featured in this vintage modernist abstract sterling silver brooch pin with amorphic shape, circa 1950s.
The mid-century brooch gives the illustion of dynamic movement and consists of handwrought sterling silver, with rectangular or rhombus design at center with textured surface, along with polished criss crossing hammered silver wire traversing through.
Levin incorporates design into function, by extending one of the wire design elements as a fitting, serving as the pin stem to the piece, as shown.
The mod brooch measures approximately 2&3/8 inches across at its widest point by approximately 7/8 of an inch high, weighs 7.2 grams, and is signed “EL Ed Levin”, and “Ster”.
