Grosse 1968 Vintage Brooch From Germany in Textured Leaf Design
Marked 1968 Grosse Germany, this vintage brooch is multi-dimensional in texture and in form. Very collectible piece, as Grosse also designed for Dior.
2" wide x 1 5/8" long
We clean, inspect and return vintage treasures to their best possible condition. Decades of old makeup, dirt and dust are removed and pieces receive a light polish. This process takes many attempts and sometimes hours of work. This is in stark contrast to most sellers. Our vintage jewelry is ready to wear, and in the best possible condition we were able to provide. It is a labor of love, and we think it shows in our photos and in person.
Bitchin Retro Notes: This brooch is in excellent vintage condition from the front, and in average condition on the underside with a small section of plating loss on the underside of the brooch. It is now a bright silver, with no pitting, just gold plating loss. (Please see picture.) This brooch also has some light silver highlights showing thru on the front of the brooch. It is more pronounced due to the zoom we used, than is seen in real life. We have observed two versions of this brooch over the years - one without the silver peeking thru, and one with. We are not sure if they made two options, or if this is minimal wear. If it is, it is very symmetrically placed in the design, so we lean towards an intentionally placed element. Please see condition descriptions below.
Vintage jewelry is rarely perfect. We will do our best to note any obvious flaws, but flea bites, and small scratches are to be expected. Please view all photos with zoom to see characteristics of this listing, and note the measurements provided, as we use a telephoto lens to show as much visual detail as we can, and this may enhance size perception. We would be happy to answer any questions, or provide additional photos.
Excellent = very little to no visible wear, though minimal flea bites/scratches may be seen thru a loupe or magnification.
Very Good = normal wear and tear typical for the age which can be seen up close, as well as flea bites/scratches seen thru a loupe.
Average = significant wear seen with and without a loupe. We will note specifics and provide photos.
We want you to be happy with your purchase, and have provided information to highlight the features and any imperfections or vintage love on our pieces. We also share condition descriptions (and lots of pictures) so that you are aware of how we arrived at our opinion. If despite our best efforts we miss something, we will be happy to work with you.
Give us an opportunity to make it right...because we will.
