GILDED DAGGER BROOCH IN TWO PARTS - VINTAGE

A vintage gilt dagger brooch - marked  'sterling'.  It is made in two parts - joined by two chains - so can either be worn as one complete brooch - or in two parts on, say, a cardigan, with the chains in between. The gilding is in good condition - as is the brooch as a whole.  It would have been made - probably in the States - in the late 1940's or 1950's.  The glass stones imitate sapphires, rubies, turquoise and diamonds.  It is approximately 4 inches long.  Ref: 2316 B88/28 Price £135.  www.gillianhorsup.com - and on Facebook - Gillian Horsup Vintage Jewellery.
