HUGE Art Deco Brooch / Crystal Rhinestone Flower Brooch

$199.20 $249.00

Item 121705 (Box 408)

Large unmarked Art Deco, circa late 1930's early 1940's antiqued gold tone over cast pot metal, floral brooch.

Although unsigned, it is clearly a superb high end costume jewelry piece. Brooch is layered and dimensional with both the larger and smaller flower attached to the stem & green enameled leaves.

Both the large & small flower consist of a lemony almost peridot colored moonstone glass center cabochon which glows a pastel pink under UV light (I can get a photo if needed). The larger flower has two layered rows of alternating emerald green glass teardrop shaped cabochons and pave crystal glass faceted round accent rhinestones. Smaller is the same but with only one row. There are slightly larger pave crystal glass faceted round rhinestones scattered throughout the stems.

The emerald green glass cabs are all open back which have been securely mounted and glued in an angle with the tips underneath a "hood" with the ends hand prong set for additional security. The pave rhinestones are the old "mine" cut shape and are closed foil backs.

Brooch measures 3 3/4" long and approx 2 1/8" at it's widest.

Condition: Very good antique condition with typical wear due to age and handling. All rhinestones are intact with no damage. The pave crystals are still very eye visibly brilliant with only slight typical hazing noticeable only under close inspection. I found no dark "dead" stones. The green enameling as well as the gold tone vermeil is in very good condition with only slight wear as seen in photos. I found only one small spot within the pot metal as seen in second to last photo. Does not go through and does not in any way effect the stability of the piece. Just stating for accuracy purposes.
