This is a unique circa 1940s vintage carved wood leaves and branch plus hazel nuts dangling brooch. The carved pieces and nuts are suspended from brass chain that hangs below the carved branch. The brooch has a standard pin back with functional roll over safety clasp.
This brooch measures 2.75" across by 2.5" long.
Condition is good. The chain has aged patina as does the wood and nuts. You could polish the chain and wax the rest to bring up the color and shine if you wished, but I like the more rustic look as is.
This would be a perfect piece to wear in the fall.
