Adorable Alice Caviness Sterling Germany Marcasite Whale Brooch: This enchanting vintage 1950's whale brooch from Alice Caviness will win your heart!

Vintage Chinese Export Carved Carnelian Agate Lotus Flower Silver Vermeil Brooch: This lovely vintage Chinese export brooch is crafted in silver vermeil.

It appears at some time the original clasp was stabilized, and this was well done. The brooch has a tube hinge and c-clasp closure. The brooch does test as silver, most likely 800 silver as was commonly used on the early pieces. The lovely beaded edge frames the center stone beautifully. The brooch measures 1 3/4 by 1 1/4" and is unsigned.
