Unusual and lovely piece from a master costume jewelry firm located in Italy named Bijoux Cascio which has been in business in Tuscany since 1948. This royal scepter features a matte gold tone finish with rich coral-colored prong set cabochons that encircle the brooch. This is a very large piece and measures 3 1/2 inches long! Beautifully detailed brooch features designer touches throughout including the fancy prongs that hold the cabochons. The company is still producing designer costume jewelry that is sold in exclusive boutiques throughout Italy and in high end department stores worldwide. Founded by Gaetano Cascio the company was originally named Alta Gamma until it became Bijoux Cascio in 1955.
I thought there was some wear to the plating but it turns out it isn't; the area cleaned up beautifully so this brooch is in fine condition.
