This mid century Scottish brooch features a gold tone thistle set with a large 17mm faceted golden rhinestone. There is a lot of detail in this vintage brooch, particularly on the leaves and on the crown of the thistle. The rhinestone is slightly cloudy but still retains most of its foil backing.
On the back of the pin, this vintage brooch is secured with a still functioning locking c-clasp.
Condition: This lovely rhinestone and gold tone thistle Mid Century brooch is in good vintage condition. It shows some of the light wear or slight scratches one associates with previously loved vintage items, but overall the brooch looks good for its age. More pictures or closer pictures can be provided if you need them.

Shipping costs are the cost of mailing an item, along with any necessary packing/packaging materials. If shipping costs seem high, sometimes they are. When estimating for the purposes of listing an item on Etsy, I have to list the most expensive possible shipping destination in a given country. More expensive items are shipped with tracking and insurance, which adds to the cost. If the difference between my shipping estimate and actual costs are greater than $2, I will refund you the difference.
If you are thinking of purchasing an item, contact me with your postal or mailing code, and I will check the precise shipping costs. For less expensive items (under $50), I am willing to ship by cheaper options, but please be aware that this can extend shipping times by 4 to 8 weeks for international shipping to some destinations, and can eliminate the ability to track or insurance the package.
In short, not turning a profit on postage, but need to cover the costs getting lovely jewellery from me to you!
