Description

What a pretty thing! A vintage 1950s delicate gold-plated brooch with a finely engraved pattern and one small pearl in the middle. Closes with a thrombone closure.

Era: 1950s

Materials: Metal, gold (plated), pearl (imitation, not a genuine one)

Length: 2.5 inches / 6.5 cm
Width: 0.2 inches / 0.5 cm

Markings: "Amerikaner" - a German mark for gold plating, "SP" - for Friedrich Speidel of Pforzheim, Germany.
Pforzheim has been the center of jewelry-making in Germany for a long time. The company of Friedrich Speidel was founded in 1868 and is still in operation.

Condition: The brooch is in very good condition, bright and shiny! The pearl is also in tip top condition, nice and shiny. The gold plating is good and not rubbed off except of the needle. There's a tiny bit of what looks like darker patina on both sides of the pearl. The needle is bent and not straight anymore, and has lost most of it's gold plating. The closure works just fine, so this little brooch is perfectly wearable.

Shipping: Priority mail, insurance and tracking are already included in the shipping fees listed with this item!
