This c1895 brooch is gilt brass with a romantic raised floral and scrolling leaves decoration. The back closure is an antique c-clasp. The pin should be woven through the fabric a few times to stay tight and secure. Size is 2 7/8" x 1 1/2".
Women wore sash brooches at the waist from the late Victorian through Edwardian periods. They accented small waists on a fabric belt. Now they are worn on dresses, lapels--even to dress up purses. They can even be worn to elegantly hold a scarf in place.
