Vintage Intaglio Hand Painted Violets Pin Brooch.
This sweet pin features 3 purple violets and a yellow leaf, moulded into the underside of a dome of glass, hand painted before mounting. It has an iridescent backing, possibly mother of pearl, and the 8-sided border has an Art Deco type of pattern. Violets are the flower of February and they are said to represent a delicate love as well as royalty and confidence!
It has a stamped metal setting with a C-clasp on the back, and we estimate the age to be circa 1920. It is unmarked and it measures about 1” high by 1 3/8” across.
Condition: no chips or cracks; minor use scratches; hinge works well; a minor bend in edge of rim.
This lovely brooch would be a terrific gift for someone with a February birthday or someone who loves violets! It can be worn with casual wear or even a business wardrobe. We are always offering a nice selection of jewelry and other vintage goodies, so please take a look through our shop. We would be pleased to combine shipping on multiple purchases.
