About the Artist:
This jewelry company was founded in the early 1930s by Joanne and Reginald Moonan; only several years later did the name change to Van S. Authentics. In addition, Mrs. Moonan designed a line of children’s jewelry called Wendy Jewelry, after her daughter. The firm was sold in 1969.
This vintage patriotic-seated bald eagle brooch is made of solid gold-tone metal. On its backside, the brooch has been signed “Van S.” on the left wing, “Authentics” on its right, and “202” on the eagle’s perch. This pin is a beauty! It remains in great vintage condition, free of scratches and other damage, and its pin and clasp mechanism is in good working order, though the pin has a minuscule bend.
