Vintage Sterling Silver String Instrument Brooch, Gold Wash, Filigree, Plique A Jour, Enamel, Folk Guitar, Banjo, Music, Nice! #k022
Here's a wonderful vintage silver filigree string instrument brooch!

This lovely gold washed sterling silver brooch is a detailed replica of a old folk guitar or banjo, including the tuning pegs, frets, bridge and strings! The brooch is three dimensional and entirely made of sterling silver filigree. The sound hole is highlighted by filigree swirls that have been decorated with pink and blue enamel. The piece is finished off with two diamond shaped appliques on each side of the sound hole. It's so unique and beautiful!

The brooch measures about 1 3/4 inches long, 7/8 inch wide and weighs 7.8 grams. The metal tested as sterling silver on a Tri Electronics gold and silver tester. There is a mark or symbol on the back of the brooch that I could not identify. The brooch closes with a locking c clasp.

This unique brooch is in good vintage condition for its age. The gold wash finish is worn and the piece has a very heavy patina, especially to the sides and back of the brooch, but it has no structural damage. It's an enchanting piece that would make a fabulous gift for the music lover or collector!
