    Amber brooch, gorgeous just stunning colour.
    I call it my Doris Day brooch because looking thrugh it is like theyve rubbed vaseline on the outside like doris day used to on her lenses....

    I can post a back picture...

    I have no idea of the maker but it has to be up there with a good maker. I'm still learning so if someone can help, please do,

    Hard to tell if its Amber or glass but I think its glass due to the uniformed look. But I've been wrong before and would be nice to be Amber :)

    If its essential I will put up more photos tomorrow and of the back :)
    Cheers Anne

      Lovely! Yes, maybe get into the habit of posting front and back please? I think mid 1960's but seeing the back helps. Very pretty!

      Sorry AnnLander I don't want to say this but I doubt it's amber. It doesn't look like amber. But it is a very beautiful brooch! I agree with Valentino97 about the age. The centerstone looks like aurora borealis?

      Hi Anne. Agree with Elizabeth its a beautiful brooch wether its Amber or not. I read a way to tell Amber is that if you rub it like a ballon it will get a small static charge, enough to pick up ash or dust.
    6. AnneLanders AnneLanders, 6 years ago
      I don't know why anyone is wishing me or others to keep reinforcing they're opinion on it is Amber or not. I've quite clearly said I doubt it is and called it glass myself.

      So please just enjoy the beauty of the piece as I have. No one can truly call anything yay nor neigh from a photo but I the owner gas...for this I thank Sean each and every time and thank you Valentino for your query. sorry been having chemo and missed some of your requests. I'll get to the back to it this week for you...Anne :)
