Vintage California San Francisco G.A.R. Encampment Bear Brooch Part, Feb. 23 1886

$ 35.00

Vintage Jewelry:  Vintage  San Francisco Encampment Historical Gold tone Bear Brooch which is part of the G.A.R. Encampment held in California on February 23, 1886.  This is the California bear image that appears on the state flag.  As a total piece a ribbon hangs from the bear and then a star hangs from the ribbon - those two pieces are not with this.  The bear is in very nice condition.  Great piece of history.  Very good condition - gold tone is in exceptional condition as many pieces are very faded - this is not.  See photos.


Lot Loc. No. Wint.53015.G1.5

Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.

I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.

In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.

I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.

Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
