Vintage Sterling Silver Alpha Xi Delta Sorority Spoon Brooch, Mid-Century, 2.5", 5.31 grams
Vintage Sterling Silver Alpha Xi Delta Sorority Emblem on Spoon Brooch, Mid-Century, 2.5" long and 5.31 grams. It came from a PA estate. It is in very good condition other than the patina which I do not automatically clean as many buyers have indicated a preference for leaving it as is. See photos. (Lot. Loc. No. Win.11.1916.G1.5).
This is the information I found on the emblem on the internet:

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.
