Gorgeous vintage William Spratling Dragonfly "Faux" Tortoise Shell Brooch. Please see super sized photos. It could use a cleaning, which I will leave to the new owner, as many people like a patina. As you see in the pictures the pin is a bit crooked and has a bend close to the tip.
It does not effect the functionality and would be an easy fix. Measures just shy of 2" or more exactly 4.8cm long by just over 2 1/2" or again more exactly 6.6 cm wide. Sterling silver with two "faux" tortoise shell wings.This eye catching, famous tortoise shell Spratling Dragonfly is signed with his stamp, see photos. This well known design appears in many books.
