Pennino's brooches from the forty's are among my favorites, and this lovely stunner is no exception. This is one of the most desirable Pennino brooches due to its brilliance and similarity to the "real thing" in design and workmanship.
There is some scratching to the metal back of the brooch and a bit on the gold band in the front, but all the stones are intact and remarkably clear and shining.
The brooch measures a full 3-1/2 inches in length and 2-1/4 inches in width and is signed "Pennino" on the back. A truly marvelous piece, this would shine in any good costume jewelry collection.
