I love this brooch. It measure 2.5 inches long and 1 5/8th inch wide at its widest. It is not marked. I have tested it for gold. Its not. I think its brass or tin metal? Has 9 turquoise stones inlayed and the face is turquoise I think too? Nicely made filagree type design on the backing with the old fashioned pin. I haven't cleaned it and don't want to really. Nicely painted red, green & blue wings down the front. Could it be southwest native? Would love to know more about it if you have any suggestions on where I may get it looked at for verification.
Thanks for looking. Blingiton1948..
