This is a wonderfully crafted brooch in sterling silver, 14K and 18K gold and dangling cultured pearls.
The brooch is signed with a stylized leaf? design and is so well made that I feel it is done by a known craftsperson.
However, I don't know who it is made by.
The main part of the brooch is of twisted sterling silver branches which are three dimensional.
To heighten the effect, where the branches are the highest, there are small gold dots.
Suspended from these branches are different lengths of twisted sterling wire heightened also with highlights of gold, and suspending 9 cultured pearls in a artistic arrangement.
There is a safety catch, and the brooch is marked Sterling, 14K and 18 K and has the swirling leaf and dot mark on the back.
A very artistic and unusual, but fabulously crafted piece.
Condition: Very good.
Size: 2 1/4 long by 1 3/4 to bottom of longest pearl drop.
