Lovely vintage brooch. This EXQUISITE horse chestnut brooch is in good vintage condition. The brooch features a large horse chestnut leaf with a gorgeous conker breaking out of its spiky ‘catjacket’. The silver tone metal is painted with cold enamel in lovely autumn colours of brown with green around the edges. The catjacket is a dark green and the conker is a shimmering golden brown. The branch is unpainted. It is very beautiful and was part of the Exquisite trees collection produced in the 1960s. There are a few areas where the enamel paint has worn away (at the end of one leaf) but it is in good condition considering it’s age.
The back of the brooch is silver tone with a strong rollover clasp. The brooch is signed EXQUISITE on the back.
The brooch weighs 27 grams and measures 6.5 cm x 6 cm.
Presented in a beautiful satin drawstring bag.
