Classic Unger Brothers design brooch of a warrior in profile and in the Art Nouveau style. Very three dimensional details despite more than 100 years of age and usage.
Signed with the UB logo of Unger Brothers and the word "sterling." An American silver manufacturing company.
Alternatively, this could be an image of Minerva, the Roman goddess of wisdom and defense.
This type of brooch was commonly used to hold a lapel watch. Currently it is also used to hold a favorite locket or pendant. And it is beautiful enough to be worn by itself - a "stand alone" design.
As always, my vintage jewelry is photographed unpolished.
