Vintage "Made in Germany" Sugared Shamrock Rhinestone Brooch

Bitchin Retro


Seriously sweet Shamrock brooch features a finely "sugared" texture and a cartouche which indicates it was "Made in Germany." This adorable piece just drips with vintage nostalgia.

2" wide x 1 5/8" long

Bitchin Retro Notes: This brooch is in very good to excellent vintage condition, and has been thoroughly cleaned. The back and all non-sugared gold tone areas have been given a light polish. Of note: A minimal amount of the sugaring was also sprayed on the sides of the rhinestone cups and prongs, as well as a little green overspray on one of the gold leaves. All of which would have been present at manufacturing. We think it just adds to the vintage charm. 

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. 

Condition Descriptions: 

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.
