Lovely sterling vermeil brooch c. 1940s in the shape of a stylized flower with two long leaves on either side. The flower's center is a 5/8" amethyst rhinestone. While there is surface wear, there is no area where the gold wash has completely worn off so that the silver shows underneath. The pinstem is not perfectly straight, but it closes just fine. The rhinestone is not chipped or scratched. The brooch is marked STERLING on one of the leaves, and measures 3 3/8" x 1 3/4". Considering its age, the brooch is in remarkably good condition.
