This sweet brooch was extremely well made. It boasts bright blue faceted foil backed paste stones which are pave set with one small clear paste stone in the center. That little paste is collet set. The edges of the 2 leaves are hand etched. The pin is straight and the fold over locking clasp is in perfect working order. The pin is signed Sterling.
It is a nice size and measures 2 1/8" long. It weighs 7.50 grams. It is a great weight but not so heavy that it can not be worn on a sweater.
I have stated Art Deco but actually believe because of its construction with puffy mount and foil backed 'stones' hand etched detail this could be a bit earlier and more likely Edwardian.
It is in excellent antique condition with no apologies to be made.
The bench jeweler took pride in this precious brooch. This would make a lovely holiday gift and give that perfect little twinkle to a lapel during the holiday season. Questions are always welcome and encouraged.
