Vintage Forstner 12K Gold Filled Tassel Brooch, Bar Pin Brooch, Double Diamond, Snake Chains #c665
This is a beautiful gold filled brooch from Forstner Jewelry Manufacturing Corp.! 

Forstner Manufacturing Corp. was a manufacturer of quality silver, gold and gold-filled jewelry from the 1920's through the 1980's. This fantastic Forstner brooch has a gorgeous 12K yellow gold filled finish. It features a fluted gold bar at the top that intersects with two open diamond shapes in the center. A lovely gold snake chain tassel with a gold ball top hangs down from the center of the bar pin. When I first saw it, it brought to mind a graduation mortarboard cap and tassel. While it may not have been specifically produced for that occasion, I think it would make a fine graduation gift. The brooch closes with a rolling c clasp closure. It's an enchanting piece!

The brooch measures about 2 1/8 inches long, 1 3/4 inches wide and weighs 6.4 grams. It is signed and hallmarked "Forstner" and "1/20 12KT G.F." on the back of the brooch. 

This mid-century brooch is so gorgeous! Its design is so unique and the gold snake chains are simply sumptuous! As mentioned previously, it would make a fine graduation gift, but it's also a great piece to wear for any occasion. As shown in the photos, It looks absolutely marvelous worn on the lapel of a nice suit jacket. The brooch is in excellent vintage condition and it's ready to wear or to gift right out of the box!I
