This old Brooch is at least 50 years old I have two of them one is in real good condition and the other is missing two pegs off of it can anyone tell me anything about these pieces.They seem to have a lot of different jewels and cameo pieces.This was given to my by a family member and I would like to gather some history on it, if anyone knows where I might get some history on old brooches or where to look

    Hi,
    Your brooch was made by Goldette NY, a very collectible costume jewelry manufacturer. Many of their pieces are unsigned but often have distinctive characteristics like fob pendants with a signature marking and high quality open back crystals. The glass intaglio is a very particular Goldette design element. I actually had a necklace with this same intaglio design, but in my case it was purple. Your brooch incorporates a very popular Victorian design with multiple stickpins and beloved symbols of the Victorian era like the snake, pansy, and the bee embellished with faux seed pearls, turquoise, coral and garnets etc. You can find examples of stickpin brooches in fine Victorian jewelry as well, usually in a fan shape.
    A great vintage find!
    Anna
