This flower is as blue as the sky with a beautiful irridescence that
catches the light brilliantly. Each petal is of a different shaping and slightly textured to catch the light. It has movable petals, allowing it to transform to its full self you see here. The center is comprised of a vermeil "cup" that is articulated to the petals, creating the cluster of 17 faux pearls. The center pearl is slightly tinted a blue tone to coordinate.

Signed with a script style Mb, this is a lovely brooch, crafted in the
traditional style of the Victorian era even though it most probably is not quite that old.
This signed brooch has a traditionally woven straw flower bouquet on a woven mat background. They are very intricate and beautifully arranged. Made of natural and pink straw for the flowers and offset with green stems and leaves, this is an outstanding piece of craftsmanship, in the tradition of hair-work. The frame is of antiqued, rhodium plated metal and the domed covering on this piece is of plastic and may not be original.
This brooch is in Never Worn condition with a safety style clasp and it also has a loop in the back allowing it to also be worn as a pendant.
It measures h 2 3/8" x w 1 7/8"
ID# SBRO~0078 ~~ Price ~ $22.00
