1940’s Aqua & Rhinestone Scroll Brooch

To quote my dear friend Eleanor McMillan, this brooch is an  “Unsigned Piece…Orphan Of  Beauty” Clive’s Unique Jewelry just purchased this 1940’s brooch at a recent flea market.  The brooch has been well worn .  There are scratches to the Vermeil  coating and some of the foil is missing on the back of the aquamarine crystals and there are Rhinestones missing  on the front…..BUT JUST LOOK AT THIS  BROOCH……look at how well it was made.  It has never lost its elegance, its creative design or its collectability . It was probably lying in some drawer in a cigar box all these years.  Just imagine what this brooch has lived through and still survived.  It could be the start of a great collection for you.
