Rare and wonderful old brooch, one of the first pins we bought for our personal collection many years ago. It features very fine metalwork, Japanned or blackened finish over a brass or copper base metal, and in the center a huge and tall purple glass faceted stone, with smaller matching stones; four around the center and another larger one on each side. This brooch is signed with a trademark and "Empire" on the back, with original old style clasp on the back. It measures 2 & 5/16" by 2" and is a real treasure.
