Antique French Hot Air Balloon PinAntique French Hot Air Balloon Pin

THIS IS A VINTAGE SILVER TONE AND MARCASITE BROOCH. The vintage costume jewelry brooch represents an antique French hot air balloon. Wouldn't this make a lovely gift for the hot air balloon transportation enthusiast? Or for anyone who can appreciate how far we have come in the aviation, airplane, air transport field. It is really in wonderful condition and construction of nice quality materials. There was no skimping on this piece when it was made. The pin is at least 30 years old. There is a large light gray faux pearl that makes up the body of the balloon. Marcasite is set into the silver colored metal making up the detailing of the balloon, top flag and the batting draped along the front and the basket are all inset with these sparkling marcasite rhinestones. There are no stones missing. Lovely pin and very well made. It would look great on a lapel, scarf, hat, purse, pocketbook or belt. 2 1/4"LONG X 1" WIDE.
