Absolutely phenomenal 1940's Retro brooch! 4 1/4 inches of ribboning and twining metal work set with larger 3/8" faux Amethyst ( un-foiled, faceted glass ) stones. Scrolling Crystal colored chatons accentuate the motif. This brooch is without a doubt, a most splendid example of the highest quality costume jewelry of that era. The beautiful, dimensional design, and well defined use of color contrast far exceeds the expected and usual visual appeal of Retro styling. The materials and workmanship are impeccable. The piece is solid and heavy. Full measurement is 4 1/4" x 2 1/2" wide. Full of Fire and Ice, and sparkles like crazy! This piece positively pops ! Marked only Sterling. Retro Extraordinaire and does Not disappoint!
