The design and craftsmanship of this brooch is beautifully detailed. There are fleur-de-leaves, flowers, micro beading and scrolls that intertwine with each other.
The back has some wear on the metal but the pin and clasp are in excellent condition.
It is signed, “Mary Smart-320N12-San Jose. We do not know the significance of the number or if Mary is the artist, if Mary is the artist she has incredible designs.
This brooch has a profile of approximately ¾”. It has a beautiful antiqued patina over the gold tone. It is not heavy in weight. Unsure of the base metal!
Measurements are approximate: Length-3 ½”; Width-2 3/8”.
