This brooch represents a spray of graceful linden tree leaves, flowers and seed pods. It is approximately 3-1/2 inches long and 2 inches wide. It is marked "hobe" and "STERLING DESIGN PAT'D". "Hobe" is usually thought of as costume jewelers with large colorful rhinestones, but they also experimented with sterling silver in subtle nature designs. These pieces are from the 1940's, I believe. The pin has oxidation -- many people prefer some darkeniong left on a piece for greater definition, this piece will be left as-is, so you can shine it up to your taste. The pin works, but is bent -- see photos.

Would look great on a jacket, or could be used to secure a scarf!

Frequently asked questions about mudintheUSA

There are two basic ways to reduce shipping fees. One is to let me know your zip code. If you are closer to me than the zip code I use for my estimates, it is possible to reduce the shipping fees. First class mail goes by weight only, not distance, so it would be possible to to reduce fees on say, a lot of buttons or a postcard only in rare occasions.

The other way would be to bundle purchases. If you were buying more than one postcard or more than one lot of buttons, shipping fees could probably be reduced. Buying something fairly light, (like an elf), with something more substantial, (like an enamel bowl), the two might combine with reduced fees.

Please write for firm estimates! I will do what I can!
I am willing to hear your reasonable offer!
I have years of experience shipping many types of items. My failure rate is a fraction of 1% -- and I have learned from my mistakes. I use industry standards to pack postcards, records, and fragile items.
