A large, round, polished blue stone is bezel set in silver tone metal. The antique brooch, itself, is not large, measuring 1&1/2 inch wide by 7/8 tall. The metal work is quite detailed. On either end is spun silver work that holds a blue rhinestone that is a a nice, complimentary contrast to the natural blue stone in the center. It has a simple, but secure, hook clasp on the back. The pin is nice and straight. I have not cleaned this brooch, preferring its natural age patina and tarnish. There are no marks as to maker or silver content. Excellent, original, vintage condition. Circa 1880-1900. PLEASE NOTE THAT PHOTOS ARE ENLARGED TO SHOW DETAIL!
