Vintage Sapphire Blue Crystal Layered Flower Brooch
This sparkling vintage brooch dates from the late 30's-40's. The sapphire blue faceted crystals are bezel set and layered. The center is cast in silver tone metal and set with a circle of baguettes around a rhinestone studded domed center. The gold tone leaves are riveted to the central flower. Although I often see these unsigned pieces attributed to Pennino, the construction is different from how Pennino made their pieces. There is normal age wear to the edges on the bezels. This piece has a nice size at 2 3/4 by 2". A very showy piece!
