    Bought "buy it now" as vintage art deco costume brooch...

    Seller shipped only to USA...

    Million thanks to the kindest CW angel who helped me to get it! <3

    No marks, old oxydation between gold and silver, which made seller believe it was plated...
    As new, surely stayed in a box for 90 years :-)

    1.5" square, 19 grams!

    It is not a 19th century example, but, from the hinge, around 1910.

    This is one of my better pieces :-D

      Absolument Magnifique....
    15. racer4four racer4four, 6 years ago
      A wonderful piece found by a CW angel, now in the hands of a deserving owner.
      It's hard to believe it is over 100 years old; as you say, probably unworn.
    16. Manikin Manikin, 6 years ago
      I am sure you look oh so cute Roy when you wear it <smiling>
      kyratango we were right all along :-) wink

      Winking Kyratango I'll tell ya,.. having a split personality isn't all its crack up to be ...smiling When Elbert Hubbard did work for a nut house from time to time he was picked up by a fella at the train station, as the horse traveled down the road they talked and as they talked Elbert asked how long he was employed there ..the fella said no I dont work there,.. I'm here cause I'm crazy Well Elbert said you seem normal to me ..The fella replies back and says I not crazy all the time, just like sane people arent sane all the time ;-)

      What an amazing bzz bzz, kyratango!!!! Such beautiful work! :)
    33. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Thank you so much Katherine! I was indeed very lucky to have been helped to get it :-))
    34. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 6 years ago
      I had seen this stone before but never knew what it was called -- sunstone! It's perfect for you, my sunny friend. :)
    35. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 6 years ago
      kyratango, is this certainly sunstone? From the photos I thought perhaps goldstone, though of course you are seeing it up close so you would know best.
    36. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Ha, Kath I didn't knew there is a difference, I thought it was the same... will have to Google that :-)
      In French it is called aventurine pailletée!
    37. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      So, I'd say this is goldstone!
    38. valentino97 valentino97, 6 years ago
      Kyra - is this your little adopted friend?
    39. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 6 years ago
      Ah yes, I thought so, aventurine, or goldstone, very beautiful! I kinda knew because I have a brooch with a goldstone cabochon. Although mine has a surface like stone not glass. Anyway, that's why I wondered. :)
    40. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Yes Valentino, this is Ziggy, baby blue tit, waiting to learn to fly :-)
      I raised sometimes ago two, named Pitt & Bull!
      I carried them anywhere with me in a basket with their food...
      Someone asked me why my handbag made noises, lol!
    41. valentino97 valentino97, 6 years ago
      Oh I love this story! Ziggy is so darling! And Pitt & Bull? Did they fly off? I carried Valentino with me everywhere too but I asked her to be quiet. She was usually under my shirt sitting on my bra top. Sorry everyone - is this TMI?
    42. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Aww, Valentino! Your Valentino was so well behaved birdie! Can't even imagine any of my birds hiding under a shirt without tweeting or peeping out and even bite me...
      Pitt and Bull were released, only Pitt came to me during two weeks, following me in the garden, and even to the neighbourhood :-)
      And for the TMI, those who don't like to hear our animals stories can go straight out, lol!
