Default little beauty

WW1 period sweetheart brooch in silver, enamels and paste stones.
Striking little brooch with a beautifully detailed St. Andrew at the voided centre. Vertical pin fitting to the reverse, a few stones missing but doesn't detract from its appearence.

Someone had some money to spend. That would NOT have been cheap originally!

It really is a little beauty, you can actually pay quite a lot for this sort of thing these days!
