This fabulous wedding brooch, circa 1940-1950, consists of a open heart with crown atop. From the heart are suspended four very detailed filigree pieces of coiled wire in conjoined tear-drop and heart shapes, which support small spoon drops and repousse triangles holding a cross. The brooch measures 2 3/4" in length, 1 1/2" in width and carries the makers hallmark and "830 S". Wonderful vintage condition with no damages and nice patina.
