Napier Ballerina Brooch Designed by Eugene Bertolli

The Napier Ballerina Brooch

The sterling Napier ballerina brooch set is often thought of as a great introductory piece to the new sterling silver Napier collector. However, the long-held attribution that this dancing lady was designed by Natacha Brooks, because of a 1944 U. S. design patent, is actually incorrect. The Napier prima ballerina was designed by a leading Napier designer. You can learn more about this collectible figural in the new book, The Napier Co.: Defining American Costume Jewelry.
