VERY GOOD. This Victorian Silver Malachite ivy leaf brooch is in very good condition. Solid and heavy, this brooch features a sturdy pin to safely affix her to your chosen fabric. The Malachite displays some light wear, which is commensurate with age, but is largely free from chips to note. The Silver settings are in wonderful shape, with the odd dent, ding and scratch throughout. These are mainly on the underside of the brooch, however, and certainly do not affect the overall appearance of the piece. There is also some minor wear around the settings of the Malachite, but again, this is all very subtle. All in all, a gorgeous Victorian brooch that will bring you endless pleasure!
