Vintage Carved Faux Ivory/Bone Three Tiered Scene Brooch, Pagoda, Village/River, 2"
Vintage Faux Carved Ivory/Bone 2" round Brooch - It has a Pagoda on the top level with intricate designed tree-tops. The center tier is a village with workers going about their daily routine. The bottom tier is a river with someone in a boat rowing along. The frame has trees on the top and coral like designs throughout. This has a cheap crafts style pinback so I'm not sure if this is real or a plastic souvenir style brooch - I did the plastic test and it did not melt however. It has marks on the back that look like carving and buffing type marks but not certain. There is a little glue residue on the back - it looks like whoever made it was going to try and put the pinback somewhere else and changed their mind - this is why I think it looks like souvenir type jewelry. It has a great look though of the real thing too. It could be drilled to make it a pendant or change the pinback but it works fine as is. I do not promote ivory or bone - do not seek it out but occasionally I get pieces as parts of lots where I am pursuing a certain piece - that is what happened here. Very nice and in very good condition. Came from PA estate sale, not signed. See photos. (Locator Number Win.188.8.131.52)

I do not store fine jewelry and for questions on fine jewelry please allow some time for a response. I respond quickly but sometimes I cannot answer immediately and need a few hours until the answer can be provided.
I will combine shipping across all venues. If you pay shipping ahead, I will refund the overage. Photos are magnified so things will appear larger than they are and they are likely in better condition than the photos depict due to the magnification. T
hank you for stopping by.
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.
