Lovely vintage brooch made in Western Germany features a fascinating blue green stone with wisps of white in a "wind blown" design. Set in goldtone filigree and measures 1-3/4" in diameter. Signed on the back.
Germany and West Germany jewelry was exceptionally popular after WWII. They featured rhinestones as well as glass cameos and brightly colored plastic beads usually with matching earrings.
Sometimes items marked Germany or Western Germany (1949-1990) can be confusing. When an item is marked "Germany " it indicates manufacture prior to World War II.
After the war these items were marked "Western Zone Germany or American Zone Germany" then just "Western Germany". Most of the time you can count on items marked Germany to be pre-World War II.
When Germany was divided, West Germany or German Democratic Republic (East Germany) were used. If the item is marked "Germany" it is probably pre-World War II unless the item is known to be of newer production. Still puzzled ?
