Rare 1940s vintage glass intaglio brooch. I see these with floral motifs all the time and the occasional bird or butterfly, but this is a first! This lovely brooch measures 4cm x 2.9cm and features a gorgeous glass domed intaglio piece with an oceangoing vessel inside. The colors of the ship and water are vibrant and absolutely beautiful! This brooch reminds me of the explorers who set out to discover new land--definitely a great piece for a daydreamer :) The glass is set inside a lightweight detailed repousse brass bezel with a working c-clasp on back. There are two fairly deep scratches about 7mm and 4mm long on the front of the glass just over the sails of the ship (see 1st photo). Some teeny tiny dot size nicks to the glass as well--only visible with very close inspection. The brass has a small darkened spot on the backside (see 3rd photo), overall a lovely timeworn patina to the metal. This is a one of a kind piece here at Treasure Booth :)
