This sparkling Art Deco Sterling Silver Paste brooch is a gorgeous example of fine Art Deco costume jewellery! It's elegant, refined and yet full of bursting colour and pizzaz!
As brooches go this one's fairly large. Measuring just over 7cm long it certainly makes a statement... and the colour of those azure blue Paste is just divine!
It's rare that you come across Art Deco brooches of this size in such excellent condition. This one has every single original Paste still present and intact, and sparkling an intense fire.

EXCELLENT: This fine quality Art Deco Sterling Silver Paste brooch is a wonder to behold, in excellent vintage condition. When you think that it's the best part of 100 years old it's hard to believe! The beautiful white Pastes are still full of life and bright sparkles and the Blue Pastes are also glorious- vibrant, evenly saturated and completely chip-free. The millegrain details are intact and the subtle pattern on each Silver edge still visible to enjoy and the settings and pin are also in excellent condition. One white Paste has a light discolouration but this is subtle and doesn't spoil the beauty of this gorgeous vintage brooch one bit!
