Fabulous brooch or pin, true Art Deco, in nice brass or similar tone metal with metalwork designs in the background, and in the center a magnificent dragonfly, almost scarab like in the center, with lime and violet rhinestones on his wings and body, and above him a diamond shape of more lime and purple rhinestones, just wonderful! This was one of the first pieces we ever bought for our collection, and many years ago this exact piece was pictured in one of the books on Art Deco / jewelry; sure wish we had written it down at the time. The metal has a lovely age patina and the brooch itself is in very good condition with signs of age but no damage or repairs, age discoloration on the back, and the pin clasp in good working order. The brooch measures 2 & 3/4" across and 2 & 1/8" tall.
