Vintage Sterling Reverse Carved & Painted Fox Brooch, Fox Hunting, Essex Glass 1940's, 2-3/8", 5.33gr.
Vintage Sterling Fox Hunting Brooch, reverse carved and painted fox under domed clear glass with a horseshoe frame and mounted on a riding crop. 1940's. 5.33 gr. 2-3.8" wide and nearly .75" tall. It is marked sterling and tested; the only maker's mark is an S after the word sterling. A great estate find. This is an equestrian themed fox hunt brooch with an exceptionally done reverse carved and reverse painted fox head inside a round domed essex glass. Brush brush strokes of its fur and mixing colors for shading can be seen - realistic eyes and a little pink tongue sticking out. Framing the fox painting is a lucky sterling horse shoe and a bar pin in the shape of riding crop made of sterling silver. This piece is in very good vintage condition. The painting of the fox is in excellent condition and so is the essex glass, the sterling is also in very good condition with just typical vintage oxidation that is very minimal. This can be polished to take it back to its new look; however, the vintage look works with this pin. This came from a PA estate. See photos. (Lot. Loc. W.2.219G2.1X1 - LD 2/26/19).
We carry mostly vintage jewelry across all themes in my stores and listings. We have our own store and are and have been known as stampshopgirl in Ebay and have been since I think 2003. At one point we had a gift shop/rubber stamping store and switched over to vintage jewelry about six years ago on a full time basis, which also including taking and completing gemology classes as well as jewelry appraisal studies. We carry limited other vintage items and am trying to change our presence to marias vintage and estate treasures. You may see both names until the migration is complete. You can find us on pinterest where all ebay items and other venues are categorized - mariasvinta0654.

Thank you for stopping by, mariasvintage.
Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.
I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.
Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
