This beautiful 18ct Gold framed “as is” Brooch/pin was awarded to German modernist artist Hilla Herzberg in 1974 from the World’s greatest film festival Palme d’or.
The Palme d’Or is the highest prize awarded at the Cannes Film Festival, France. It was introduced in 1955 by the festival’s organising committee. Previously, from 1939 to 1954, the highest prize at the festival was the Grand Prix du Festival International du Film. In 1964, The Pame d’Or was replaced again by the Grand Prix, before being reintroduced in 1975.
The Palme d’Or is widely considered to be one of the most prestigious awards in the film industry. Here an award to Hilla Herzberg from 1974 as Grand Priz Palme d’Or des Beaux-Arts just before the reintroduction of the Palme d’Or in 750/1000 gold with jeweller’s mark: “SFORZA”
This extremely fine filigree, cast and and detailed palm leaf with needle can be worn as a brooch. A beautiful rendition of this international acclaimed award in it’s original frame (note some slight damage to the frame).
Hilla Herzberg was born most think in 1928. She has always declined naming her exact age. She is a modernist artist famous for her wood cuts.
