Sorry, this item sold. Have OhFaro make something just for you, or try these other items:
ALCo was well known for their high end, ornate gold and silver fountain pens, which are highly collectible; they also produced charms, novelty items, watches and jewelry.
I don't know the metal content of this piece, but it is not magnetic and polishes like silver. It's not pot metal.
Measures approx. 2 inches wide by 1.5 inches high.
I'm estimating the age at 1870's to 1900's, based on the information I was able to find on the history of the company here, starting on page 177, tiny url for convenience, cut and paste: http://tinyurl.com/3oaqf98
If that url does not work, I'd be happy to send the information I have for your review, just use the conversation link to request.
The company was based in New York and I am having a difficult time finding information on the French origins of this piece; perhaps they sourced the work out.
Beautiful condition, but it IS an antique so expect to see signs of age.
A perfect addition for high end bridal as a sash, bouquet or gown accessory. This piece will make your ball gown a smashing success!!!
I have more vintage rhinestone jewelry here:
