This lovely little branch or tree pin is probably from the 1950s or 60s. It is a great example of finely crafted vintage costume jewelry. The gold metal is shiny with no scratches. The tiny little pearls are prong set. There is a nice 1-1/8" pin on the back with a locking mechanism. The brooch itself is 2". There is a signature of some kind on the back, but I cannot read it even with my loop! It may be a mark to indicate the type of metal used.
