Vintage silver onyx turquoise bird urn brooch
Vintage Silver Black Onyx Turquoise Victorian Style Bird Urn Statement Brooch
An incredible large vintage sterling silver Victorian style oval statement brooch. It features a decorative floral and leafy border set with turquoise stones around a central black onyx cabochon. It depicts a raised floral urn with two birds. The back has a locking pin back and is marked sterling Mexico. The imagery is reminiscent of Victorian mourning jewelry. I believe it was likely made sometime in the 1930's or 1940's.
It measures 2.25" tall and 2" across.
Condition: Patina consistent with age. There is a small chip to the onyx on the back in one of the spots where the decorative piece was attached.
