Item details

Vintage from the 1940s

Material

Silver

Dimensions

Length: 2 1/16 Inches; Width: 1 9/16 Inches

Made of sterling silver, this vintage oval brooch features beautifully detailed repoussé roses and pansies bordering a smooth, reflective center. Brooch is from Samuel Kirk and Son and includes the original card it would have been sold mounted to. S. Kirk & Sons were well known for their sterling repoussé work and, while the company started in the early nineteenth century, we estimate this brooch to be from the middle of the twentieth century.

Traditionally, the center of this style brooch would have been engraved with initials or a date to customize the piece for the wearer. A nod to a bygone era, engraving this brooch would make a lovely gift. Check with your local jeweler for engraving options.

Marked S. Kirk & Sons, STERLING, and 14F
Approximately 2 1/16" by 1 9/16"
14.90 grams

Sterling has not been cleaned or polished and bears a charming time earned patina as well as some small dark flecks across the smooth center. Pin hinge and clasp are in good working order.

Sales card has some discoloration, particularly where the edge of the brooch came into contact with the paper. The backside of the card has the number 16.59 (which is the gram weight of both the brooch and card) written in ink.


A lovely piece, perfect for wear as-is or for custom engraving!

This seller usually responds within a few hours.

Plain and simple, yes. As most of our items several decades old, and thus have earned the moniker "vintage," they have been used and loved by someone else before coming to us. As a result, many show their age and some wear from use.

We encourage our customers to review each item's description and photographs thoroughly and ask any questions they may have about its condition before purchasing.
