This is a vintage sterling silver ballerina brooch. The brooch is marked STER with another mark which I think reads AMco. This would date the brooch to the 1940s, made in the USA. I used a jewelry cloth to remove the surface dirt and left some dark patina to make the folds of her dress more textured. If you prefer, the brooch could be polished to a shiny silver. The brooch is very similar to the ballerina brooches that were made by LANG. What looks like orange discolouration in the brooch is just reflection of my hand during photos. In lovely condition.
Measures 2.25 inches from head to toe and 2 inches wide. Weighs 9.31 grams. The roll over clasp is secure when worn.
A lovely gift for a ballerina or a ballet master in your life. Maybe that is you!
