Vintage 835 Silver Filigree Leaf Brooch, Skeletonized Leaf, Skeleton Leaf Pin, European, Signed HS #c253
Just in time for fall dressing, I have this superb vintage silver filigree leaf brooch!

This large and beautiful brooch is comprised of 835 silver and is of European origin, most likely Germany. It has the three-dimensional shape of a long, slightly curved skeleton leaf with a unique stem and spiral flower. The leaf is exquisitely detailed in filigree work, with raised silver central veins that branch out into fantastic networks of capillaries, such as you would see in nature. The edges of the leaf are scalloped and the brooch has a locking c clasp closure. It is a magnificent filigree work of art!

The brooch measures about 2 7/8 inches by 15/16 inch and it weighs 7.3 grams. It is hallmarked "835" and signed "HS" on the back of the leaf stem. I was unable to identify the maker.

This brooch is a fantastic example of filigree work and was definitely created by a skilled artisan! The brooch is large in size, but the filigree gives it a delightfully light and airy appearance. It can be worn in many different configurations, making it quite versatile. I love the way it shows the color of an outfit through the splendid filigree. The brooch is in excellent vintage condition. It appears to have the remnants of a gold wash along the central vein and stem, which just adds more character to this lovely piece. It's a fine vintage find!
