Brooch, 1998

This is a Brooch. It was designed by Anton Cepka. It is dated 1998 and we acquired it in 2016. Its medium is sawn and mounted silver. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

Anton Cepka achieved international recognition despite having lived behind the Iron Curtain for several decades. His delicately worked jewelry, primarily in silver, is known for a precision and economy of line that make his work appear almost weightless.

This object was donated by Susan Lewin. It is credited The Susan Grant Lewin Collection, Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
