This vintage brooch is a flea market find and I'm wondering who the maker is. Can you help me?

    The picture is small and its hard to tell that it has a signature. If you can get a picture of the entire back that may help us. Many times the construction can help identify a maker. I love the colors, nice find!

    I will see if I can get a better photo. There are no words. It only has this little shield with a cross on it. At first I thought it was a heart, but I settled on the shield idea. I couldn't find anything like it in the online reference places I checked.

    I think maybe it is British or Dutch, but that's as much as I can determine at this point.

    Wow! Seeing it from the back has made this piece very interesting. I still cant tell the mark. You think its a shield w/cross? It looks more like an acorn or just an imperfection in the casting. Whatever it is you can see its a quality piece. I tink I saw a Regency bracelet and earrings set that was very similar to this piece. I will keep trying to figure this out if you find the maker let us know.
