    Was happy with this find for $2 from estate sale.

    A wonderfully rare mixed-metal Curio Medallion brooch by George Shiebler. The pin comprises four individual medallion plaques, each in a different metal and each depicting a different Olympian god. From left: a diamond-shaped gilt-silver plaque shows Artemis/Diana, goddess of the hunt and protector of virgins; a round silver plaque shows Ares/Mars god of violence and offensive warfare, a square bronze plaque shows Dionysus/Bacchus, god of various debaucheries, and a triangular brass plaque shows Athena/Minerva, goddess of wisdom and defensive warfare. The surfaces retain their original patination and sharp detail. The back is marked with Shiebler’s wing hallmark and the design number “1488”. Origin: America, ca. 1880.

    Measures : 2-11/16” x 7/8”.
    Weighs: 13 grams.
