A lovely vintage Sterling Silver Russian Finift Brooch set with 3 hand painted porcelain enamel cabochons. The Brooch is not marked but tests as sterling silver.
Measuring 1 3/4 inches in diameter the Brooch fastens with a folded over v shape clasp.
The Brooch is in excellent condition with no damage and the silver has a lovely aged patina which accentuates the filigree style wire work on the brooch. The only 'fault' is that the pin is quite blunt at the end instead of ending in a sharp point. I believe that it was made this way and is not a problem when wearing it with most fabrics as the blunted end is still quite sharp so will go through most fabrics unless the fabric has a very close weave. The point of the pin could be easily filed into a sharp point if you were going to wear it on a finely woven fabric.
