RETRO Repousse Brooch:  Theatrical Comedy, Tragedy
$65.00

Measurements: LENGTH: 4" - WIDTH: 1 1/2" - slightly three dimensional repousse.

Created in the 1940's - possibly as a pattern for casting sterling brooches - this brooch is silver over copper - photographed unpolished (as always with my vintage jewelry). The discolorations are tarnish and will disappear with polishing.

Note the pin stem, "c" catch, and hinge finding which help to date this particular piece to the 1940's - perhaps earlier.

I love the bold repetition of the theatrical design. Large, but lightweight enough to wear without damage to any except the most fragile of materials.
