This large filigree brooch or sash pin was made by E.A. Bliss, the company that eventually became Napier. It features old style flat back rhinestones with small jewel and colored bead accents in blue, green, clear, purple and amber. A similarly embellished heart-shaped piece is shown in "The Napier Co." by Melinda Lewis in the 1910-1920 section. We believe this was made around 1910 or a bit earlier due to the Victorian influence on the styling, but definitely during the early 1900s. It closes with a "C" clasp. Marked "E.A. Co." on the back. Measures 2 7/8" by 2 1/2". Condition is wonderful for this type of early piece with minor patina to the silver plated filigree and stones that appear to be all original. This piece appears in “Warman’s Costume Jewelry” by Pamela Y. Wiggins (Krause, 2014) on p. 18.
