I wish I knew more about this wonderful vintage brooch. It is marked Sterling Sandwich Glass Briggs Cape Code. The glass has beautiful blue and white with red sparkles in it. It measures 1-1/2” x 1” and is in fabulous condition.
Glass manufacturing made its way to Cape Cod in 1825 when Deming Jarves opened the Boston & Sandwich Glass Company. Providing skilled immigrants from East Cambridge better working conditions, housing and opportunities, the company helped usher in the Industrial Revolution on Cape Cod and provided women well paying jobs beyond nurse or teacher.
