WOWza! This is a huge over the top brooch. However, do not be afraid, it is not tacky, it is wonderful and easy to wear.

I purchased this years ago from an antiques dealer here in Chicago. He had a charming store on Dearborn Street. He told me that he had purchased a lot of jewelry from Austria, and that is where this one originated.

It measures a full 6" long!

It is not marked.
The silver/chrome can be polished with silver cleaner, and it does tarnish like silver. But, since it is not marked (at least I could not find a mark), I am selling it as chrome.

The black is a nice plastic, along the lines of bakelite (although it is NOT BAKELITE). There is a nice crystal in the center (perhaps an Austrian Crystal?).

The style reminds me of the 1980s Memphis Style (which originated in Italy). It also have a "disco deco" feel to it.

Please enjoy it as I have, on jackets and coats.

As always, your satisfaction is guaranteed.
Returns accepted with a smile.
