Flea market find from this weekend. Beautiful flower brooch, rhinestones, pearl beads + interesting leaf stones (I thought that they could be hematite, but the stones are not magnetic - glass maybe?). Some stones are missing, but this can be corrected. There is some worn-off plating but the overall condition is very nice, and the design speaks to me!! I have never seen a Czech-marked brooch in this style, so its my first.
The brooch is marked CZECHOSLOV. - the signature is in tiny letters on one side of the pin mechanism - so tiny that I barely noticed it. Why is almost everything Czech marked on such difficult to see places is a mystery to me! Its almost as if they did not want their customers to find out!
As for the age - let the experts here decide. I will be thankful for your opinions, as usual. 1950s, 1960s? In my opinion the condition is too good for this to be an older piece.
