Vintage Sterling Silver Orchid Flower Brooch, Floral, Trumpet Flower, Handmade, Rustic #c644
This beautiful sterling silver brooch has the three-dimensional shape of an orchid flower, complete with its petals, sepals, column and a long curved stem. A white faux pearl projects out from the center of the flower on a silver stem. The flower is superbly detailed throughout and has a very rustic, handmade appearance. The stem is decorated with a wonderful chased zigzag design. The brooch closes with a simple c clasp closure. It's an enchanting piece!

The brooch measures about 2 7/8 inches long, 1 5/8 inch wide and weighs 5.6 grams. It is unsigned but tested as sterling on a Tri Electronics gold and silver tester.

This is a large and beautiful floral brooch! As mentioned above, it is handmade and very rustic which I believe gives it a wonderful charm. I gave the brooch a polish, but a darkened patina from age remains on its surfaces. The finish of the faux pearl is wearing away (photo #7), but it could be easily replaced with another faux pearl bead if desired. The brooch can be worn in many different configurations, making it quite versatile. It would look lovely worn on the lapel of a suit jacket or a nice coat. It's a one of a kind vintage find!
