Rev Painted Lucite Orchid Chatelaine Ribbon Mourning Brooch Vintage
This unusual chatelaine style brooch has a large black lucite cabochon with what I believe is a reverse painted orchid on it, though it is fairly abstract and could be another type of flower. The cabochon is framed with a silky ribbon bow, and I believe the back is chrome. The cabochon and goldtone frame (stamped metal) has a 1 1/2" diameter, and the total height from the top of the ribbon to the bottom of the chains is 3 1/4". It has the old-style type clasp on it, which is attached with metal fasteners and not glued. I believe this brooch was made in the 1940s. Be a wonderful addition to a chatelaine brooch collection!
It will be shipped in a gift box.
