This is a large and lovely 1930s vintage Czech brooch featuring a circle of multi-colour rhinestones around an open centre filled with wire-stemmed flowers. The flowers have rhinestone centres and petals enamelled in various pearly pastels, with ridge details in the underlying metal.
The setting is a slightly-matte goldtone with a textured edge adding interest to the sideview. The rhinestones are prong set and the brooch is fitted with a north-south pin to prevent this sizeable brooch from toppling forward. It is 5 cm (2″) across and 0.8 cm (0.3″) deep, marked Czecho Slovakia on a cartouche.
Dimensions: 5 cm (2″) across with a depth of about 0.8 cm (0/3″).
Marks: Marked “CZECHO SLOVAKIA” on a cartouche on the reverse.
Condition: The brooch is in very good vintage condition with no missing stones. There are some slight age-related nicks in the enamel and the rhinestones set in the flowers are somewhat dulled, but the rest are very bright and the gold-tone is in good overall condition.
