Bavarian Jewelry Iridescent Glass Grape Pin 1950s Vintage Jewelry
This unique grape cluster glass pin was made in Bavaria in the 1950s. The clear glass on the top is domed and faceted around the perimeter. The grapes are pearlescent purple enamel and the background is a unique type of shimmering pastel iridescent glass. The brooch is made of silver metal with an old beaded frame and the glass cab is set is bezel set.
This type of glass is often mistakenly called Goofus glass, however I am an expert on old European glass and although this pin is not signed, Im certain of it's origin.
Made especially for wine lovers, this grape pin is medium petite in size at 1 1/2" wide x 1 1/8" tall or 3.8 cm x 2.9 cm.
The entire pin is in pristine microscopically clean condition. There are no signs of age or wear to the silver metal and the glass cab is perfect with no scratches, scuffs, or chips. The grapes and the iridescent glass are perfect as well with no signs of age or other imperfections.
Comes gift wrapped and shipped in a new presentation jewelry box.
