Bell Copper Vintage Flower Brooch-50's

 Flower brooches are the desire of many costume jewelry enthusiasts. 

This is a copper flower.

 The detail of the pin is great. Each petal has been pieced individually. This layering technique presents and reflects light well. The brooch is a stand alone piece at 2..5" 

The flower back is marked Copper by Bell.  This trademark was used by the Bell Trading Post Co of New Mexico. The company made tourist jewelry from the 30's to the 80's
