Hello! Welcome to our auctions!!! We love vintage jewelry... and so will you! There is nothing better than wearing a unique piece of vintage jewelry, something that catches everyone's attention, something that is special. Most of the jewelry we sell is from 50 to 100 years old. Vintage jewelry will have age wear...please don't expect it to be in brand new condition. Our jewelry will show age appropriate wear. Part of the charm of vintage jewelry is the look and design.... to have something that you won't see everyone else wearing!!!

This is a gorgeous vintage brooch! It is signed NORWAY - STERLING - 925S - and the makers mark for AKSEL HOLMSEN. The brooch is made of sterling silver in the design of a beautiful butterfly. It has enameling in white and black. I love how the pattern of the metalwork shows beneath the enamelwork! The brooch measures 1 3/8" by 3/4". Very good vintage condition. The enamelwork is nice with no chips or cracks. The silver has a dark patina that we have left untouched. Great accent brooch for the lapel! You will love it! We have more fabulous vintage Scandinavian silver jewelry listed now....
