Pretty with detail comes this large, lovely floral pin.
A small round peridot rhinestone graces the center of this well detailed flower. Interesting that when looking straight on at this brooch, the back pin used for closure looks like the stem of the flower rising up from the bottom of the large leaf, but of course, would be invisible when actually pinned of course. Although no signature of a maker, it is stamped STERLING on it's back side and is quite a well made piece.
This piece measures 2 3/4" high and is a bit over 1 1/4" at it's widest.
In good vintage condition with no visible problems that I have seen.
Weighs out at 8 grams.
