BSK figural leaf brooch with cut out work - gold plated. BSK was a premiere costume jewelry company in business from 1948 to the early 1980s.
This piece is most likely from the 1960s, judging by the copyright symbol and the style. It is an excellent example of why they were considered such a first rate company. This is the type of brooch you can wear with just about everything!
It measures 2" (5.1 cm) by 1 1/4" (3.2 cm) and is in very good vintage condition.
This would be lovely as a Wedding cake brooch, wedding dress sash or part of a wedding brooch bouquet! See last photo for an example of a brooch I sold used as a wedding cake brooch.
Not only do brooches liven up a dress or sweater and look great on scarves and coats, but how about some of these ideas:
Attach one to a slit in a skirt to highlight legs
Wear it on a sash at your waist
Add one to a purse to make it an evening bag
Use a brooch to hold a tote bag shut
Put one on a hat for added flair
Pin brooch on a ribbon for as a hair accessory
Fasten to a chain as a pendant
