This very high quality 1940's late Art Deco period or retro brooch has two lovely iris flowers and three sparkling two-toned purple and dark brown inverted tear-drop shaped rhinestones. The pin back is signed, "White Co" which was first used in 1927, and the back of the stems is signed as gold-filled although it is very hard to read. The metal acid tested as sterling silver with gold plating. The design of this pin is absolutely gorgeous and so graceful. It measures 2 5/8" tall and is in excellent condition with no damage or wear, and was freshly polished.
