Bird Slip-on Brooch, 2012

This is a Brooch. It was designed by Iris Eichenberg. It is dated 2012 and we acquired it in 2016. Its medium is sheet copper, electroformed copper, ribbon (silk). It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

This brooch, shaped like an abstracted bird, does not get pinned or clipped to clothing as do traditional brooches, but is set on a large black panel that rests directly against the body, under the wearer’s clothing.

It is credited The Susan Grant Lewin Collection, Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
