This sweet reindeer brooch I could not leave when I found it in Boston on a recent buying trip. He is beautifully made and has a big personality! There is a large, natural and tested purple amethyst which dangles, pendulum style. The brooch is a nice size and measures 2 1/4" from antler to toe.. Across his stomach he measures 1 1/8". The dangle is deep as is the stone. It measures 3/8" across x 1/4" deep. He weighs 8.7 grams.

Purple Cab glows.. There is a twisted sterling rope that encircles his body as well as the cabochon. He is stamped Sterling behind his front leg. The fold over clasp is in perfect working order and the pin is perfectly straight.

The brooch is in pristine condition with no apologies to be made. He was very dark with patina when I purchased him. I generally do not polish my jewelry but he really did need it. There is still nice warm patina left just inside of the twisted rope decoration.

Circa 1940, likely American made. 2 1/4", widest portion, 8.7 grams of sterling with natural tested large purple amethyst cab..

If you are looking for an unusual Christmas or holiday brooch which is not your everyday Christmas tree or poinsettia, this may be just the perfect brooch for the holidays. I think it would make an outstanding holiday gift for someone special. Or, perhaps for yourself. Unique and unusual, always my favorite! Questions are always welcome and encouraged.
