We are pleased to offer this beautiful and substantial vintage brooch or pin. Although unsigned, we believe this piece is of Czechoslovakian origin.
The brooch is essentially round in shape with a scalloped edge. Among the filigree setting there are small flowers and fleur de lis. Around the outside there are twelve multi-colored round rhinestones. In the next row in there are six larger multi-colored round rhinestones interspersed with 6 baroque pearls. In the innermost tight circle there are ten small multi-color round rhinestones and a very large center ruby color rhinestone. All of the stones are faceted and prong set.
This wonderful brooch measures approximately 2-7/16" in diameter. There is a pin and c-clasp. We have not cleaned or polished this piece. It is in very good condition. There is a tiny bit of damage (a scratch and a couple of tiny nicks) to the center stone which is not readily visible when worn.
A beautiful piece for any time of year, and especially for the Christmas holiday season!
