Green Floral & Ribbon Bow Brooch circa 1940's. this brooch is amazing, the back is almost more interesting than the front, check out the construction. the green stone flowers (silver tone metal backing) piece is riveted onto the ribbon/bow (gold-tone) piece with 4 rivets. This piece appears heavy but it is not. the measures 3-1/4" from top bow to the last ribbon, and across it is 2-1/2".
I have done some research on it, there are no marks making research harder but the best estimate (I can with certainty) from the 1940's. that is all I have been able to find, the use of the larger 4 green open backed stones is similar to the work of Esinberg, Pomerantz, Joseff & other designers from the 1940's Hollywood's Glamor Era. Of course, remember this is a hobby of mine and I am no expert. If you can help identity this brooch, I accept all ..... Lori
