This is a wonderful vintage Czech brooch featuring leaves and flowers enhanced with blue rhinestones, dating to about 1920, possibly earlier.
The stones are a bright sapphire blue, prong-set and foil-backed, with a lively sparkle typical of Czech rhinestones. The brooch is quite dimensional, with puffy petals and curvaceous leaves, nicely detailed throughout. It is fitted with a simple c-clasp
This brooch is quite large, measuring 6 cm (2.4″) across by 5 cm (2″) high.
It is marked “MADE IN CZECHOSLOV” on a plaque on the reverse.
This brooch is in excellent vintage condition – about the best possible for a brooch of this type and age. The goldtone is very fresh and bright, with just a small dark area on the bottom left of the right hand flower and top centre on the back (see pics) but otherwise remarkably intact. The rhinestones are undamaged and the clasp holds securely.
