Vintage Elco 12K Gold Filled Sterling Family Tree Branch Maple Leaf Charms Brooch Pin #c723
For offer today, I have this lovely mid-century, gold filled and sterling family tree branch and leaves brooch from the Elco Company!

This beautiful tree branch brooch is comprised of gold vermeil sterling silver and 12K yellow gold filled leaf charms. The brooch has the shape of a swirling gold tree branch with an open filigree bottom edge. Nine shiny gold filled maple leaf charms hang down along the length of the branch. It was common for mid-century mothers and grandmothers to have these brooches made with the engraved names of their children and grandchildren. Since all of the leaf charms on this brooch are blank they can be engraved and personalized if desired. The brooch closes with a rolling c clasp closure It's an absolutely enchanting piece!

The brooch measures about 1 1/8 inches long, 2 3/8 inches wide and weighs 10.5 grams. The brooch is signed and hallmarked "Sterling Elco" on the back. All of the leaves are signed and hallmarked "12KT. G.F." in a half circle around the name "Elco" on the back. 

This is such a gorgeous brooch! It would look stunning worn just as it is on the lapel of a suit in the fall. It would also make a great gift for a mother or grandmother, especially if the leaves were engraved with their children's or grandchildren's names and dates of birth. You could personalize these charms in most any way so the possibilities are endless! The brooch is in excellent vintage condition and it's ready to wear or to gift!
