Vintage Red Rhinestone Layered Floral Spray Brooch Rhodium Metal: This vintage rhinestone floral spray brooch is simply stunning! The bright rhodium plated metal is as lovely as the day it was made. The leaves and stems are composed of navette and long baguette rhinestones,all clear and brilliant. The trio of ruby red flowers are raised above the leaves and each is centered with a clear chaton rhinestone. All of the stones are individually prong set. The lovely design lends itself to be worn at many different angles. The riveted construction is classic 1950's. The brooch measures 2 1/2 by 2" and surprisingly is unsigned.
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!

Circa 1930's.

The rhinestones are all individually prong set, the construction high quality on this lovely unsigned brooch.
Vintage French Folliate Pink and Black Art Glass Swag Brooch: This stunning vintage brooch features an ornate brass setting of leaves and vines, embellished with a large pink art glass stone swirled with black and white. I had a very hard time getting the stone to show properly due to reflection. Four chain swags drop below the brooch. The brooch measures 3 3/4 by 1 5/8" and is in superb condition. The brooch is signed France right on top of the clasp hook, faint signature and I was not able to get a good readable photo of it.

Vintage Sterling Silver Art Nouveau Style Bird in Trumpet Vines: This stunning sterling brooch features a stamped design of a charming bird clinging to trumpet vines. The design is lovely, with curled leaves, berries and morning glories in a frame around the bird on branch. Although crafted in the art nouveau style, the clasp dates this as a later piece.

The rollover clasp is tight and secure, the brooch in excellent condition.
