Brooch - Victorian Ornate Sterling and Glass Banjo

Click to enlarge

A very unique item - Unmarked sterling silver banjo with wire strings - 3" long with a molded glass insert. This is from an estate and I do not know much about it. The wires are strung through the end and one of them is loose. It could be replaced or removed. Otherwise this is in good condition. I have not tried to clean or repair it. The glass insert is intact. There is a loop at the top so it can actually be worn as a pendant.  A beautiful and unusual piece.

 Most of our items are vintage unless we tell you otherwise. Therefore expect them to be in "Vintage" condition. This means normal wear and some softening of stone sparkle is to be expected. If either is in excess we will note it in our description. We do not thoroughly clean our items,  leaving that to the preferences of the buyer,  and if there are any serious problems, flaws or noticeable repairs, we will always try to note it in the description.  Realizing that nothing can replace a "hands-on" inspection of an item, if you are not satisfied with your purchase for any reason, we will always accept returns or otherwise try to make you a satisfied customer. Our return policy can be found at the top of each item page.

If you ask us to hold an item for you and then change your mind about purchasing, please let me know so that we can remove the hold and release for sale. Thank you for shopping with us !
