Ebay France is getting more and more interesting antique jewelry!
New sellers... affordable pieces, and even bargains (not Bonnie prices though!).

At least shipping is cheap and I get my treasures in 2 days, yepeee!!!

I picked this immaculate brooch at 50€, although seller had other expensive pieces :-))

Wingspan: 6cm.
Length: 5.5cm.

Pinchbeck or yellow metal.

No scratches on the pastes, I only had to tighten some prongs, open a little the C clasp and bend backwards the pin to give it more elasticity.

And another Bzz Bzz for the hoard!

    Thank you so much for your kind comment and love, Newfld! Your frog and the dragonfly are friends :-))

    MsCrystalship, thanks! It should have been barely worn and kept with care, not among other pieces in a drawer... Only the rusted needle shows age :-D
