Antique Brooches and Pins


Antique brooches and pins are wonderful, diminutive works of art.  They are miniature masterpieces that bring the artistry, passions and craftsmanship of an earlier era into the present.  Below are brooches from the Victorian,  Art Nouveau,  Edwardian and Art Deco periods.
