Converted Antique Hat Pin Purple Vauxhall & Rhinestone Estate Brooch
What a fabulous antique brooch! I believe that this was once the top of an antique Victorian era hat pin. The brooch is done in a brass colored metal with a dimensional design that is set with unusual Vauxhall purple glass stones, and sparkling clear glass rhinestones. The brooch measures about 1 11/16" across. Good condition with age appropriate wear as seen in the enlarged photos. Upon close inspection, you can see a few chips on the stones here and there. It is also pierced in the back of the metalwork where maybe it was used as a sew on or large button at one time. Judging by the clasp, it was probably converted in the 1940s. This is dazzling in person and the setting of this is amazing! You will treasure it!
