Lovely vintage 1940s sterling vermeil bow brooch Original by Robert. The design is just wonderful and has a beautiful mellow yellow gold wash to the vermeil (sterling silver plated with genuine karat gold). The bow has three loops that are embellished with an applied delicate rope wirework design which gives added interest. It is asymmetrical with a folded over ribbon tail and a flourish of rhinestones to the side which I just love. The colors are fresh with rose pink, emerald green and aqua rhinestones. It is minty condition with no wear whatsoever and measures 1 3/4" by 1 1/2". It has the artists palette logo with Original by Robert and STERLIMG in block letters on the reverse. A real eye-catcher! The sterling vermeil pieces are getting harder to find and condition is everything..Fresh from a local estate of fine antiques and jewelry.
