This vintage sterling silver estate brooch is stamped for sterling silver 925, as well as a maker, but the maker's mark is illegible. This vintage sterling brooch is of a nicely detailed maple leaf, with a brushed silver finished, and bright etched lines to detail the veins in the leaf. It's a beautiful little vintage brooch, modern but timeless in its style.
Condition: This estate sterling silver maple leaf pin is in good vintage condition, and just shows the normal wear you would expect with a previously loved vintage item. There is a small black dot on the brooch, near the base of the central stem.
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.
In short, not turning a profit on postage, but need to cover the costs getting lovely jewellery from me to you!
