I really couldn't resist buying this little beauty. It is a rare sweetheart brooch that was edited by a Jewelry and handpainted on genuine Limoges Porcelaine. It has the flags of the four great powers and is dated 1944 and signed. It's something not many could afford buying those days of hardship , so Ifigure the ladies who wore them in 1944 must have been pretty wealthy . check out thedetails , the flags look really like silk!
