I love these old pot metal brooches! This one has a pink enamel ribbon that swirls around a basket filled with blue, yellow, pink, and gray faux moonstone "flowers". Clear rhinestones adorn the basket and are dotted here and there among the flowers. Just charming!
Measurements: 2.5 by 2.25 inches (6.4 by 5.7 cm)
Condition: Very good, with minor wear to the enamel. At least two of the rhinestones appear to be replacements, and I see one missing stone.
Reference: "Gems of Costume Jewelry", Gabriele Greindl, chapter on flower baskets. Two of these brooches are shown in different color patterns.
