Welcome to my shop, The Strands of Time. I hope that you will enjoy browsing through the fine vintage and antique jewelry items in the shop and find something that is special.
This brooch is quite beautiful. It is made of 18K yellow gold. I have had the brooch tested and it is made of solid 18K gold NOT gold plate or gold filled. The pin shaft tests 10K. Hallmarks were not required until the very late 1900's so it is not unusual that a piece this old is unmarked.
The pin is 2 1/8 inch x 2 1/8 inch x 5/8 inch and weighs 10.3 grams. The design is that of a grape vine with beautifully textured grape leaves wrapped around it. There is a small dangling leaf handing down from the bottom of the pin. The leaves have a soft textured gold with highly polished veins. This combination gives the pin a beautiful appearance. It was extremely difficult to capture the contrasts in photos.
The pin is in excellent condition and has original patina.
I am always open to reasonable offers but, if items are reduced or on sale, they are already at the lowest prices.
Thank you for visiting my shop and please come back again. I add new items regularly.
