Attractive, old, gold tone brooch in the shape of a spade with a pretty brushed surface and a clear paste stone in the center. It has an old style C-catch and pin hinge, and the pin stem extends beyond the width of the brooch.
The brooch is 1 and 5/8 inches wide, 1 and 1/2 inches high, and it weighs 12.5 grams. The paste stone is 8mm in diameter, and it rises above the surface of the brooch about 1/8 inch.
Very good condition. There is some aging on the back of the piece, but the front is in remarkably nice condition.
