This fabulous cast brass pin is HUGE! A full 4 1/2" (4.5") in length and 1 3/4 (1.75")" in width. Definitely not for the shy.
It is gorgeous and in absolutely fabulous condition – a true timeless beauty.
Wings feature beading on the outline of each feather and superb detail work on the inside of each individual feather as well. Top and bottom of pin are mirror images of each other.
The brass outlines really accentuate the piece without being too bold or having a brassy look. Beautiful patina.
Center of pin features a bezel set large green oval Bohemian art glass cabochon framed with beading. Edges of wings each have smaller oval cabochons. These are also bezel set. I hope your computer picks up the lovely green colors. Very similar to jade in color. No deep olive tones, just soft, yet having a bit of vibrancy to the color. . .
Clasp is a "C: clasp. Hinge, pin-stem and clasp are in excellent working condition.
Large cabochon is 7/8" x 5/8" Two smaller ones each measure 9/16" x 5/16".
I was informed that this glass is known as dragons egg glass. Perhaps because they are a wonderful blending of greens and in the form of eggs
Brooch is not straight and flat, but rather has a slight curvature to assure for a better fit when worn.
My pictures are pretty good, but they don't capture the true beauty of this piece and can't compare to seeing it in person.
