1930's or 40's MASSIVE vintage figural leaf brooch. The leaf at the base has an edge totally inset with crystal rhinestones. The silver tone rays inside the leaf highlight the large blue crystal faceted stone in the center with a metal piece draping over the blue stone that is also encrusted with crystal rhinestones. There are layered curved gold tone pieces with a flower in sapphire blue rhinestones on one side. This is an extremely well made piece similar to Reja and De Rosa pieces, but unsigned. I do not know if it is vermeil or plating over a base metal. This brooch is 3 1/2" from top to bottom and 2 3/4" across at the widest point. A few of the stones, particularly around the edge of the leaf have darkened with age. I did not replace those couple of stones to leave the brooch in it's original awesome condition!
