Art Deco Brooch Monogram F B or B F Silver Agate Marcasite

Very vintage circa 1920 European early At Deco brooch, silver set with a green agate hexagon embellished with a handsome, custom made, one piece marcasite studded monogram, NOT two pieces joined, entwined F and B, can be read in either order. This piece was in an estate loaded with valuable, high quality jewelry, and though it is probably "just" silver, it was a custom piece and high quality design and workmanship, and the owner valued it enough to have the pin portion and the clasp replaced at some point, impossible to show in photos but apparent to the trained eye. I suspect that the original marks were on these portions and were lost when it was replaced. There are four tiny missing marcasites, enlarge photos to locate, and as with all marcasite jewelry, these are not apparent in wear, and close inspection must be made to reveal this. It measures a hair under 1.5 inches wide, and 1 inch tall. I will of course combine multiple item purchases for actual cost only shipping, by combined weight.

We do expect payment at time of purchase for single items, just click the Pay Now button on the purchase order. Multiple item purchases can either be paid for at the time of purchase, and we will refund overages on shipping and insurance cost to the penny, or you can wait for an invoice with our adjusted combined weight shipping costs, and then make payment.
