In gold tone is this beautiful 1 7/8 inch by 1 1/2 inch. retro leaf brooch that is highly detailed all the way down to the veins in the leaf. It is literally as if the maker dipped a fallen autumn leaf in gold to give to someone he loved! There seems to be no real meaning to such a brooch except that they convey a timeless beauty. In times past we pressed leaves for keepsakes and art, being so gentle with the leaf for fear of it crumbling away! So here is a retro remembrance that won’t so easily loose its beauty to time.
Please remember this is a piece of vintage or retro jewelry. Most of it is used and will show some signs of “normal wear” that comes with age. We are very careful not to destroy any patina that may have formed as we think it adds to the beauty of these pieces. Of course you may want to polish or clean off the patina, and that is totally up to you. As we describe each piece if we find any flaws or defects we will point them out in the description. If we have replaced clasps or made other repairs, we will also note these in the description.
