Description

This is a beautiful vintage brooch, consisting of an enameled four-leaf clover that is set in sterling silver. The end of each leaf and the clover’s sterling stem are trimmed with prong-set marcasites. The leaves are covered with two different tones of green enamel. There is also yellow enamel in the center of the plant. There is a red and black enamel ladybug that is set in sterling silver and attached to the top of one of the leaves, giving this brooch a three-dimensional look. Both the clover and the ladybug are symbols of good luck. The back of the brooch is marked “Germany” and “Sterling Silver”. There is also another mark present, but it is very small and I cannot decipher it.

Marcasites and enamel were very popular on German jewelry that was made between 1920 and 1935. They were also used on some German jewelry in the 1950s and 1970s.

This brooch is 1 1/4 inches (wide) by 1 1/4 inches (high).

This item is in very good condition, with no chips or cracks on the enamel and no bends or repairs on the metal. The sterling needs to be cleaned.

RETURNS AND REFUNDS

Please read the description and view the images, which are a part of the description. I will not accept a return, unless I made a material misstatement in describing the item or failed to disclose significant damage. In such an instance, if I am contacted within 4 days of the receipt of the item, I agree to accept a return, and the item is returned to me within 10 days of the receipt, I will provide a full refund and will also reimburse the buyer for reasonable return shipping costs (for which the method of return has been agreed upon, before the item is returned). If an item is damaged during the initial shipping, the buyer is responsible for communicating with (and submitting paperwork and proof of damage to) the shipper, so that a refund can be obtained. I will assist the buyer with obtaining compensation for the damaged shipment, to the extent that I am able to.
