Please read my guide on restoring and purchasing restored jewelry.
Gorgeous vintage enameled pin dating to the 1930's era. This brooch has been almost completely restored, I purchased it years ago just because the enamel was almost all gone and the stones were very dull. Don't know its history only that I wanted to give it a much needed new life, lol~I am a professional porcelain artist, my work was featured in art galleries in the southwest and published in porcelain magazines as well as other publications. I also taught seminars around the country and sold a lot of pieces until vintage jewelry and designing jewelry captured my interest. This bit of history is just for my buyers to be confident that the piece is professionally restored. For many years I bought the early enameled pieces including ones which had lost most or all enamel as I wanted to restore them. Much easier than China painting to be sure, lol! I had sold most of them over the past 10 years, especially the ones I repainted. So here is one from my collection as I love lily of the valley designs. However, I decided to offer it for sale now.
This is an almost total restoration in that all rhinestones have been replaced and most of the enamel has been repainted. There was a bit left in areas of the brooch so I followed the color pattern and here it is. If you are hesitant about buying restored vintage jewelry please read my guide on the subject for some input. This is a gorgeous deco era lily of the valley inspired brooch. Shades of green enamel has been blended throughout the piece and clear rhinestones sparkle in the pods along the stems. Reddish pink lucite moonglow stones are set in the areas which depict the blooms. The pin is made of pot metal which has been rhodium plated. Please look at all photos for best description. Measures 3~1/2" long x 2" across at the widest point.
