A sweet classic piece of Old Costume Jewelry that still retains all of its charm.
Made of Cast Brass. Beautiful patina looks more like gold than brass. It is not brassy, but has a soft finish and feel to it.
In the center is a lovely Fairy or Angel in extremely high relief. She has a 3" wingspan accented with what I believe to be a celluloid round cabochon on each wing. Cabochons are paste set in bezel cups that have very fine saw tooth edges. There are matching art glass drops suspended on chains. The colors are wonderful. You can see flecks of gold in the glass that just gives off a nice bit of sparkle. Not gaudy, just nice and a bit eye catching. There are remnants of black enamel in the deep recesses that can still be seen.
Back has C clasp. The hinge, pin and C clasp are in terrific working order. Brooch measures 3" x 1 3/4", not including the drops. The total length with the chains and drops is 2 7/8".
