Vintage Gablonz Rhinestone Brooch Bohemian Green Crystal Glass
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a brooch that would have been made in the Gablonz area of Bohemia circa 1910s - 1920s. The piece is made with an ormolu stamped brass that is set with emerald colored faceted crystal glass rhinestones. The backs of the rhinestones are painted in metallic gold except for the center stone. The pin has a safety catch.
The color on the stones is a very attractive deep green - very pretty.
The Gurtlers (metalsmiths) of Gablonz were highly skilled craftsmen - jewelry of this period from Gablonz was made to an exacting quality.....very pretty brooch that is sure to be noticed!
