This sterling silver sea gull brooch has quite a wing span. The piece measures 3-3/8 inches wide. The brooch has a soft sheen and is simply detailed with incised lines. It is gently dimensional (not flat). The back of the brooch is marked sterling and bears a makers mark that I cannot identify, but I believe may be Native American. There’s just something about the simple elegance of the piece and the use of incised lines on the front that lead me to believe that this may be a hand-crafted Native American piece. The brooch is in excellent vintage condition.
