I think this brooch is fairly old - likely from the late 1940s or early 1950s judging by what the previous owner told me. It is a pretty gold toned metal frame and is set in the middle with an operculum, which for those who don't know, is a type of snail shell used a lot in Victorian and Art Deco jewelry. However, I don't think this is from either of those periods. As I said above, I think it is from the 1940s or 50s. It is 2" x 1 1/4" and has a good pin stem and safety catch. It is in excellent condition with no problems, and it is marked, as shown.
