Vintage Genuine Marcasite Flower Brooch & Safety Chain
Description

This is a beautiful and rare Victorian/Edwardian Suffragette colours basket of flowers brooch set on rose gold colour metal - I believe this could be rose gold plated.

The 'flowers' are green and violet with a single cream faux pearl set on the open work basket. The violet stone is open backed giving greater depth of colour. The first Suffragette brooch in this style I've seen.

The three colours were worn to support the Suffragette movement - green (give), white (women) and violet (vote). Not everyone had the courage to openly support votes for women so pieces of jewellery were made in the Suffragette colours enabling women to subtly show their support.

All the claw held stones are present with a secure 'c' clasp. This shows slight wear and the charm of a vintage patina.

It would make a great addition to any collection. A wonderful piece of vintage jewellery in good wearable condition.
Approximate measurements are just over 1" by 1" at the longest and widest points.

I have not cleaned this due to many requests for vintage jewellery to be left in it's original condition. Vintage jewellery will almost always show signs of wear.

I have tried to describe this as accurately as possible but if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you for looking and please check out our other items.

Happy shopping and have a great day :-)
