Scroll work and laurel leaves frame this lovely medallion like brooch. The added pearls and gold beads enhanced the sophisticated statement of this 18K solid gold antique pin. The push-pull (trombone) closure safely keeps the brooch in place. This fine brooch is in its original very good condition with just a couple of dents on the outer rim (see photos). Superb adornment for that little black dress. Fully hallmarked.
