VINTAGE CORO GOLDTONE GLITTERY BLOOMING FLOWER BROOCH
Price: S$30.00 (US$25.00) nett


Size: 74mm
Signed 'Coro' in script. Fine - good condition, mostly due to some chips on the plating, revealing a copper base, they are on the tips of the petals, back and inner rim (please see photos). The construction is still sturdy, eye-catching piece. This is a very large, dimensional design with a matte yellow gold plating, and golden glitter on some of the petals. 1960s.

VINTAGE AB RHINESTONE TRIPLET PETALS GOLDTONE FLOWER BROOCH

Very good condition, slight normal aging on the plating at the back (slight dull spots). Highly reflective surface with a tinge of rose-gold colour. This is a very dimensional, stacked petals, chunky brooch. The pin-back slightly jiggles from the rivet but is not a problem. There is a single large ab-rhinestone set in the center. 1960s.

****

VINTAGE LARGE THREE-DIMENSIONAL CORSAGE PINK ROSE BROOCH
Price: S$45.00 (US$37.50) nett


Size: 56 x 85mm
Very good condition, normal aging, some flaking of the green paintwork on the underside. The brooch is very three-dimensional, large-sized almost like a corsage. It is made plastic, in layers, possibly celluloid, acetate or some form of old plastic. There appears to be some touch-ups on the flower itself, the silver glitter edges and the tops of the pink petals may have been added later. I am guessing this as the underside petals seem to have a more original paintwork similar to how the leaves are. Wonderful statement piece, possibly around 1950s. Will ship in a box for safety.

Price: S$35.00 (US$29.17)

Fine - average condition for its age, wear on the plating, I can't tell if it was originally silvertone with a golden tarnish now, or that it used to have a pale gold wash but has worn off most of it on the front to reveal a silvertone... Some scuffs on the polished surface. Lots of aging too, the metal and pin has darkened. Appears to be pink & clear paste glass rhinestones. Flat wire-work style from about 1930s.
