This candle brooch is featured on page 120 of Mary Morrison's book, "Christmas Jewelry". It is a large candle done in two layers, the front hammered, the back brushed. It sits on a bed of holly leaves and pin needles. Orange stones make up the flame of the candle, while other stones adorn the candle and the base. It measures 2 1/4" tall by 1 3/4" at the widest point. It is signed ART on the back. There is a slight bend in the bar pin on the back, which does not interfere with its locking ability. There is some metal wear in spots on the front, which could be touched up with a gold marker.
This piece is from my personal collection, which has been stored in a glass case for years. I hope you will enjoy it.
Thanks for visiting my store.
