The brooch is marked to the back' Sterling' for sterling silver. The brooch is in the form of a bird with wings outstretched and set with many sparkling marcasite stones. I have called it a Pheonix as it appears so regal. There is a long well secured pin and roll over locking clasp to the back.It is well made and beautifully detailed. It is a genuine vintage piece and would date to around 1950. There is no damage to the brooch and no repairs.
