Here we have a lush Art Deco Filigree Czech Brooch.
Very intricate. Very charming. And very reasonably priced.
If you are looking for a beautifully made antique, for the price of a bag of chips and a bottle of wine, then look no further.
Keep your eyes peeled. This weekend I am going to write a lot. An awful lot. About Chinese textiles, here is a little peek:

Good old amethysts; the Ancient Greeks would have us believe amethysts ward off the intoxicating powers of Bacchus.
So if you like a tipple, this is the brooch for you!
This stunning 1940’s pin sparkles and twinkles away, and just one glimpse of it will keep you quick witted and clear headed all day long, another Ancient Greek myth….?
Fabulous condition, superb quality. If your Valentine’s Day didn’t live up to expectations, then now is the time to treat yourself!
Buy this brooch here, in my new ETSY shop, before someone else does!

The Scottish company who makes this kilt pin was founded by the late Scottish industrialist, Hamish Dawson-Bowman, for the express purpose of introducing a new sense of purpose and pride of achievement into the lives of disabled ex-servicemen, by reviving the ancient art of the Scottish silversmith which had so long remained dormant. Quality, dependability and customer care have long been hallmarks of this company and are just a few of the traditional values which the third generation of the family is committed to upholding.
