  • Beautiful vintage brooch. This Montana blue crystal flower brooch features a large oval cut blue claw set crystal surrounded by 12 smaller oval shaped claw set crystals in the same colour. The glass crystal stones were originally foil backed - the foil on the smaller crystals are still intact but the larger crystal has had the foil removed. The larger stone probably became scratched.
