Description

This vintage brooch or pin is made of pewter, an alloy of around 90% tin with a combination of lead, antimony, bismuth, copper or silver in various proportions and it has been used for more than 3,000 years - mostly for pots and pans and ornaments. It wasn't used for jewelry until the 20th century. pins or brooches were made of pewter in the 40's and 50's and plated with gold or silver.

This is an unusual brooch that looks like it represents a club or religion ~ it has the shooting star and moon, the middle charm or ornament might represent a group of planets...maybe. There is no maker's mark on it. It's a fascinating piece, one sure to generate interest or curiosity from admirers. It's a lightweight piece, soft and bendable. Pewter is prone to tarnishing. Cleaning pewter is pretty simple. a bowl of soapy water and soft brush shines it right up. It attaches with a long pin at the back of the straight piece that the chain is attached to and a spring ring. It's in good condition.
