Vintage Victorian or Edwardian Brooch, Pendant Combination with mounted Dried Flowers, Leaf Shaped
Antique late Victorian or Edwardian Brooch - it is made up of two stamped leaf gold tone pieces with raised pronged settings holding seven little dried flower-like accents in red and pale yellow. There are three hoops or closed hook-like pieces on the top or bottom, depending on how you attach this that could act as hooks to attach to a chain to make it a pendant rather than a brooch or to hang something from if you attach it with the hoops on the bottom. The side and bottom of the hoop comes from the edge of the leaf-like shapes and there are also coils inside the design of the brooch so that unless you see the back, you wouldn't know they are hoops and would just be part of the design. Not 100 percent sure about the hoops but it is a great estate find from a Pennsylvania estate where I got items from the 1800s into the 1900s. It is not signed. It is a brassy gold tone with a very nice stamped design visible on front and back and a C-like clasp. See photos.

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.
