Beaded brooches of this sort, were particularly popular around the 1940's to 1950's. This hand-made beaded brooch would look just as stunning today, on any dress, cardigan or jacket and would be the perfect addition to your ensemble for any Vintage event. It would also make a fantastic gift.
A photo cannot show just how lovely this item is. It is in excellent vintage condition and stunning:

Let me tell you its history - as that is the fun part! A little dress shop was owned by an old lady, near to my home. She had owned the shop for over 50 years, inheriting it from her mother who had owned it for 50 years before that. The shop was haphazardly crammed full of clothes and accessories. When she died, the shop was cleared and vast quantities of old stock was found, including an old box of these beautiful, handmade corsages that had languished, forgotten and neglected. I was fortunate enough to purchase them all - and customers who have already purchased from me, have been enchanted with their beauty and their little bit of history.
I hope you too are intrigued by this item, that was lovingly made and displayed in a little shop over 60 years ago - then packed away and forgotten until today
