Vintage Reverse Crystal Intaglio Painted Brown Horse Flower and Leaf Brooch: This gorgeous reverse crystal intaglio features a lovely brown thoroughbred horse in one of the prettiest settings I have seen. The clear crystal is carved from the back and hand painted. The painting is in excellent condition with no wear, the white areas are a reflection of my LED lights. The intaglio is bordered with a gold tone frame with dark striped accents, which is in turn framed with a lovely gilded stamped brass pattern of leaves and flowers. The brooch measures 1 1/2 by 1 1/4" and the condition is excellent.
Rare Philadelphia Colors Bakelite & Chrome 1930's Bar Brooch: Rare and collectible, this fabulous late 1930's bakelite and chrome brooch features individual curved sections of multi color bakelite, deliciously wrapped in chrome. The colors bring to mind the famous multi color Philadephia bracelet, something we bakelite lovers all dream about! The bar on the back of the brooch carries the patent number 206696, this number dates to 1937 and is for the pin bar mechanism. The brooch measures 3 by 1/2" and is in excellent vintage condition. I have not polished the chrome, I will leave that to the new owner if they should choose, but I think it looks great as is.
Vintage Enamel Swordfish or Marlin Brooch with Rhinestones: This vintage figural swordfish or marlin brooch is simply amazing! Enameled in light green with dark green accents, the fish has a white stripe down his body accented with a bright yellow stripe. His eye is a golden rhinestone. He has clear rhinestones on his "sword" and what I am calling front fins. The rhinestones have yellowed over time, and are all original. The design of this piece is simply amazing! The plating on the pot metal back is in great condition, with one area of wear by the back fins I have shown in a picture. The brooch is quite large, measuring 2 3/4" by 3 1/4". The brooch is unsigned.
Vintage Articulated Man with Rhinestone Hat Lucite Stones: This adorable figural brooch features articulated arms and legs with large red and gold faceted lucite stones and a rhinestone hat. The lower arms and legs are set with clear rhinestones, as is the hat. All the clear rhinestones are prong set. The gold plated metal is in excellent condition. This brooch has a lot of movement in the legs as all the joints are articulated. Only the lower rhinestones are articulated on the arms. The brooch measures 3 by 1 1/4" and is in excellent condition. It is unsigned.
Vintage Ornate Filigree Style Flower Brooch Lucite Bullet Cabochons: This impressive vintage 1940's brooch features three dimensional flowers set with red, green and sapphire blue bullet shaped lucite cabochons. The brooch is crafted from gilded brass in an ornate stamped open work design resembling filigree. The brooch is in great condition, the differences in metal color are due to lightening, not plating wear. The brooch is unsigned and measures 4 by 2"
Vintage Sterling Framed Double Parrot Brooch with Copper Wash: This lovely vintage sterling silver brooch is a period copy of a Coro sterling Norseland brooch circa late 1940's. This brooch features two copper washed parrots on a branch framed with leaves and berries. The brooch measures 2 1/2 by 1 3/4" and is unmarked, but acid tests as sterling silver. The only flaw is a slight bend in the pin stem, which does not effect the secure closure.
Magnificent Huge Art Deco Sterling Silver Silver Pink Glass Peacock Brooch: This art deco peacock brooch is amazing! Crafted in unmarked sterling silver, the peacock features a body composed of pave'd clear rhinestones. His magnificent tail sweeps out behind him, and is embellished with large deep pink faceted glass stones capped with tiny rhinestones. As you can see, his longest feather has a slight bend downwards. The feathers are layered for a lovely dimensional look. The body of the bird has a few very dark rhinestones, I have not replaced these but left the brooch as i found it. I think some of the rhinestones are also new replacements. This is mentioned for accuracy, for this brooch is simply gorgeous! This design came in two versions, this is the larger. The brooch is not marked for metal content but tested as sterling silver. The brooch measures a substantial 4 3/4 by 1 1/2".
