Here is a fabulous large flower brooch. It features a sterling silver design of a large blooming flower with leaves, stem and closed bud. Inside the open flower is a wonderful large faceted blue glass oval stone!
This brooch is very reminiscent of Guglielmo Cini's work as well as the large Hobe sterling pieces. It is signed "STERLING" in a rectangular cartouche on the back but there is no maker's mark or signature.
This lovely pin really makes a statement. It measures approximately 3-1/2"H x 3"W. The blue stone measures approximately 1" x 9/16". The brooch is quite substantial, weighing 29.8 grams or 1.05 ounces. We have not cleaned or polished this piece so it retains a nice aged patina. It is in very good condition and the blue stone is in excellent condition.
