Well, there's something to be said for a good cry, one would assume, and this lady exemplifies the virtues of such release. Apparently handmade and unique, brooch measures approx. 2 1/8" high x 1 3/4" at her widest point. Bright-goldtone detailing still looks great. WHAT MAY LOOK LIKE WEAR TO THE EYEBROW AREA IS, I BELIEVE, THE NATURE OF THE INTENDED DESIGN. Only signs of age-appropriate wear--upon truly CLOSE inspection--it a tiny bit of crazing. Otherwise she's in terrific vintage condition.
