Antique Edwardian sterling silver faceted emerald green paste bar brooch
Stunning deep emerald green paste brooch. Paste is a term used for cut handmade glass that was made to look like real gemstones. These two are delicately made with large faceted stones that allow the light to catch just right to the deep green color. Set in solid sterling silver hand made quality with rich deep patina. Lever pin back is longer than brooch. Common technique used in older jewelry due to the heavy materials that were used in vintage clothing and furs. No hallmarks or signatures found at this time. Tip of pin lever has small bend but secures tightly. Otherwise in great vintage condition for its age.
Acid tests positive for sterling silver.
Brooch measures 1 and 1/4 inch long and 1/2 inch wide
