I just love this wonderfull rich lapis lazuli glass brooch. Judging by research online I think this is circa 1930’s. The glass has flecks of gold in it and is mottled darker and lighter blue. The C clasp at the back is slightly bent. No damage to the glass stones or the brooch. There is a little metal tag on the back with 377 on it. Please look at the pictures carefully and dont hesitate to ask any questions.
Costume jewelry has been around for almost 300 years, as jewelers began experimenting with inexpensive types of glass as early as the 19th century. Through the decades, costume jewelry styles have evolved due to changing social and political trends, typically mirroring the larger trends of the fine jewelry world.
