This large vintage brooch with its stylized floral design and flowing lines is simply exquisite. The design of this 1940’s pin features five stylized leaves in different sizes which gracefully curve from the base. The inner parts of the leaves are gilded, and the outer sections are silver in color and test positive for 925 silver. The two outer leaves are embedded with brilliant rhinestones which sparkle in sunlight or candlelight.
The brooch measures 1 ¾ by 3 ¼ inches and has a standard pin stem and safety catch closure in very good working order. The design has many of the elements used by Alfred Philippe during this period but is not signed. The brooch is in beautiful vintage condition with the exception of a couple of very light marks, and all the rhinestones are present.
This pin with its lovely floral design is an elegant brooch of excellent quality. It is a larger brooch, and it isn’t going to sit quietly in the corner. It will not be content to be a wallflower, and it is definitely not a shrinking violet. It’s a stand-out piece ready to shine!
