This is a wonderful vintage sterling silver bug, lady bug like, but with an amber body under the metal wings. It is posed on a small branch in a very realistic way. The pin mechanism is different from most I've seen before. (see photo 5). It is all one piece of metal, coiled at one end of the branch's underside with the non-piercing end running about 1/2 the length of the inside of the branch and attached to it. For this reason, the pin arm does not open up very far. It is simply flexing, not hinged. This is normal for this design, but also worth mentioning. The pin point goes into a non-locking c clasp. The brooch measures 1 3/4" W x 5/8"H. It weighs .25oz. or 8 grams. If you have questions, please contact me.
