Vintage Equestrian Saddle Horse Transfer Print Porcelain Brooch: This wonderful vintage brooch features a lovely saddle horse head transfer print on porcelain. The horse has a wide blaze and a full snaffle bit bridle. I love his alert ears and expression! The setting is a lovely openwork gold plated filigree design with old style roll over clasp. There is also a fold up bale to wear the piece as a pendant. The brooch is in wonderful condition, any white on print is reflection from my LED lights. The brooch measures 1 3/8 by 1 1/2" and is unsigned.
Amazing Vintage Red Purple Rivoli Rhinestone Brooch: This astounding vintage brooch was hard to photo, and with all that is going on with it, hard to describe! The brooch is an explosion of navettes in rich purple, deep ruby red and deep pink. The center is a large volcano rivoli in an unusual square shape. Small chaton rhinestones frame the clusters of larger marquise rhinestones and the crowning glory is the dimensional flower set asymmetrically on the brooch. Although you can pin this to be in the center if you choose, the brooch was designed for the flower to sit to one side. All of the stones but the center rivoli are prong set. A large piece at 3 by 3", it is in excellent condition and surprisingly unsigned.
Vintage Russian Amber Spider Bug Brooch: Although this brooch is often referred to as a spider, he only has 6 legs so we will just have to allow some artistic license! This bug is crafted from gold plated metal with a large teardrop Russian amber body and round head. There are markings above the clasp on the back, but I can't read them. I often see these pieces sold as 8k gold, but this is plated metal. A nice size at 1 3/4", he is in excellent condition. C-clasp closure holds securely. This fun critter will be a great conversation starter!

They have a lovely luster and orient. The brooch measures 1 3/8 by 1 1/2" and is marked SILVER. It acid tests strongly as sterling.
Vintage Brushed Gold Tone Amber Rhinestone Fish Brooch: Adorable vintage figural fish brooch in gold tone metal. The metal is detailed and heavily textured. The fish has ruffled gills accented with amber topaz rhinestones with a line of rhinestones running through the center of the tail.
