I just found this in one of my Mom's old beaded handbags. She has been gone now over 10 years, being she had a talent for hiding things as she aged, I am still going through things that belonged to her. She loved antiques, art, jewelry, crystal, and so many other things
Since she was such an avid collector, I take my time making sure she hasn't hidden any of her treasures in old bandaid boxes, coat pockets, etc. If I close my eyes I can recall the night she wore this, she had on a beautiful long black chiffon gown with a white and gold shawl and used the brooch to secure the shawl to the dress. My parents were heading to Lincoln Center to see Madame Butterfly. She looked so beautiful that night. I love how a beautiful piece of jewelry can bring back such a magnificent memory.
