Condition: Very good vintage condition, as shown in the photos. As is typical of vermeil brooches of this age, there is some wear to the finish (see closeup photos), more pronounced in the photos due to enlargement and not noticeable when worn. The stones are all intact and appear to be original to the brooch. A few of the small clear stones have a tiny bit of yellowing around the edges. The colored rhinestones and colored glass cabochons are in beautiful condition.
