Vintage Montana Blue and AB Rhinestone Brooch: This sparkling vintage brooch is crafted in silver tone metal and features deep Montana blue rhinestones and sparkling blue AB rhinestones, each stone individually set in multi prong cups. The blue is a bit deeper than my pictures show. The brooch is in very good condition, with light normal wear to the AB coating on the stones. This is nitpicking, but mentioned for accuracy. The brooch measures 2" across and is unsigned.
Vintage Russian Finift Enamel 800 Silver Lady in Repose: The art of Finift enamel began in Rostov in the 1760's. I will post a link at the end of my description if you are interested in the history of Finift enamels. This particular brooch features a delicately enameled pastoral scene of a lady in repose in traditional costume. The pastel greens and pinks are peaceful and serene, our lovely maiden in quiet reflection. The simple but elegant 800 silver setting sets the brooch off to perfection. The brooch measures 1 7/8" across and is in excellent condition. The link to the information about this craft is:https://russian-crafts.com/crafts-history/enamel-history.html please pardon the reflections, the enamel is mint.
Vintage Deeply Carved Butterscotch Bakelite Rose Brooch: Although many of these bakelite roses were made, this is one of the loveliest carvings I have seen. The vintage bakelite brooch is a rich butterscotch in color, with the rose being exquisitely carved. There are no chips on the edges, and the original pin back is in excellent condition. The brooch measures 1 1/8 by 1 1/4".
Vintage Sandor Opening Flower Brooch with Rhinestone Frog: This adorable vintage brooch from Sandor features a gold plated opening flower upon whose stem perches an enchanting frog with a rhinestone belly. Each petal of the amazing flower is textured. The little frog is incredibly detailed, even his skin is dimpled. The emerald cut rhinestone is securely prong set.

Gorgeous 1930's Blue and Green Vintage Czech Flower Basket Brooch: This vintage 1930's flower basket brooch features bright rhodium plated metal set with sparkling open back oval emerald green and aqua blue rhinestones. There are two shades of blue stones, giving even more interest to the brooch. The stones are all set in heavy prongs and the sparkle of the stones is amazing. The brooch measures 2 1/4 by 2 1/8" and is unsigned but Czech in origin.
Vintage Pot Metal Sultan Warrior Brooch: This wonderful vintage brooch features a cast pot metal turbaned Sultan wearing a sword. The detail and dimension are so well done, and he is in excellent condition. I love his long beard and curling mustache! The brooch measures 2 3/4 by 1 3/4" and is unsigned. The old style roll over clasp holds quite securely. This piece has some weight, so more suited for a jacket.
Vintage Rare Adele Simpson Sapphire and Clear Layered Snowflake Brooch: This rare vintage brooch from designer Adele Simpson is as desirable as it is beautiful! The large snowflake design features sapphire blue ovals and navettes accented with clear, sparkling rhinestones in layered gold plated metal. The top dome is attached with hook and eye construction, only used on high end pieces. I replaced the dull clear navettes around the outside of the brooch, bringing this piece back to its original beauty, as they were dull and darkened. The large clear center stone is as brilliant as the day it was made. Adele Simpson clothing was sold in high end boutiques, her jewelry was only made for a limited period of time and sold for extremely high prices even back then. This stunner of a brooch measures 2 5/8" and is signed Adele Simpson.
Vintage H. Pomerantz 1940's Glass Wing Bee Brooch: I am so pleased to present for your consideration this extremely hard to find H Pomerantz bee or wasp pin. This and the matching rabbit, which I also have, are two of the iconic pieces from this hard to find maker. The wings of the bee are large, unusual clear faceted glass, one layered above the other. The cast pot metal body is gold plated. The tail of the bee is curled down in a "ready to sting" position. His body is paved with sparkling rhinestones. There is some wear to the gold plating and the top wing has a small chip on the underside of the glass, not easily visible, but mentioned for accuracy. He measures 2 by 1 5/8". The brooch is unsigned but acknowledged to be H Pomerantz, and is a book piece.
Vintage Green Glass Cabochon Brooch with AB Rhinestones: This stunning vintage brooch features fold tone metal set with rich, glowing deep green glass cabochons in teardrop and marquise shapes. The center is set with an enormous faceted green glass stone. All of the stones but the accent AB rhinestones and the center marquise are open back to allow the light to play through. Please note they are also all prong set. The gold plated setting is in excellent condition. The brooch measures 2 1/2 by 2 1/4" and is in excellent condition.
Rare Signed Silson Horse Head Hitching Post Brooch: This rare Silson brooch from the 1940's features a horse head hitching post.
