New PictureQuirky accessories can transform a formal outfit and this bold Forties brooch is certainly a statement piece. Made from a solid faceted diamond of perspex/lucite and reverse-carved to produce a beautiful internally encased 3D rose design, it is in fantastic condition and has no scratches or flaws.

The bloom appears suspended in ice, delicately glowing as if brushed with gold dust and stands in contrast with the angular shape of the brooch. It measures 5cm by 3.5cm and fastens with an original gold pin clasp. Classy, distinctive and wonderfully retro, this piece would look amazing clasping a white scarf worn over a tailored jacket from the period, or as a finishing touch on a fitted tea dress or blouse.

Bidding ends on 1 September and currently stands at £2.50. To bid on this item, click here.
