This gorgeous antique brooch from the Art deco era is crafted in the 1930s from camphor glass and sterling silver. The camphor glass displays the typical starburst pattern etched into the back of the glass with a cute star in the center. The sharp geometric patterns add to the Art deco appeal of the piece.
Camphor glass jewelry began in the 1890s as mourning jewelry and continued to be highly popular through the 1940s. A treatment with hydrofluoric acid vapors creates the frosted appearance of the glass. The results resemble the appearance of camphor gum, hence the name.
The pin is in very good vintage condition, with tiny signs of wear on the metal and glass. The glass shows no chips or cracks and no stamps or marks. The silver has a moderate layer of patina that can be polished upon request.
The clip measures 1-1/8″ tall and 3/4″ wide and weighs 3.02 grams. The box is for display only.
