Very nice old brooch in a floral design better described as a Sash pin with the Etruscan look and somewhat in the shape of a Shield. As mentioned, this is an older brooch using an earlier C-Clasp closure and there is some finish wear which I really think is patina. This piece has not been tested but it may have a high Silver content. There are no dings or dents. Measurements are 2 9/16 x 2 1/2 inches.
