This is definitely one for Eileen!
What I have learned from her… By looking at the clasp, the C clasp and the way it is flat hinged it’s definitely 1930s or earlier. But, the way the pin protrudes past the edge of the brooch speaks to the 20s or earlier, if I remember correctly?
The gemstone is not glued and it is in beautiful condition, albeit some slight scratches on the top. It looks to been pushed back a little because the back of the stone touches the pin and I don’t think it was meant to do that. There are no markings. But it’s truly a fine piece!
This is yet another acquisition from my “I’m going to say that I’m going to collect pieces to which I shall act as a steward and look after them for generations to come because it sounds a lot better then I can’t control myself or my spending when I get around old jewelry”.
Thanks in advance for your help!!
