This vintage 850 silver brooch is domed to replicate flower petals done in blue, green and rust colored petals. At first, it looks like the petals are enamel, however, when you look from the back side, each petal appears translucent, like a molded glass or resin. A gold veneer covers the silver, which is most clearly seen from the reverse side. From the back, it has the filigree look of Chinese export silver. This is a very unique and rare piece!
Measurements: The pin is 1.5 inches in diameter with an approximate .675 inch rise from its base.
Condition: It is in very good vintage condition overall. If you look closely, there are many tiny breaks in the petals, but to see them you need a loupe. It may be that the breaks were part of the process of pouring the glass or resign over the filigree petals. Please use the zoom feature to review condition and to enhance its description.
Marks: On the pin back, it is stamped "850."
