    Excellent quality for costume - this is 2-1/2", probably from the 1970's. I wear it with my real Navajo brooches.

    Found a little more info regarding St. Labre:
    Founded by Leo Dohn from New York, he built a jewelry manufacturing plant in the 1960s on a reservation of the Northern Cheyenne in Montana. The plant was in operation only until 1975. They were best known for fake turquoise pieces like this.

      Thank you Sean!

      Thanks also to PatSea - it is very nice.

      Thanks Ken - yes - good quality and really well made for just junk!

      Katherine - the mark is St. Labre. An identical one right now on ebay.

      Thanks Elisabeth, okay to mix fake and real? I've worn it as a necklace too.

      Sweet post !! Thanks for sharing!!

      I also still have my 1970's Blue Jean jacket......LOL

      I have a few more than I can wear old blue jean jackets. This one is a favorite Levi's, not as old as the 70's but mended and patched....Thanks for loving the old fake brooch.
