This is a fabulous brooch. Made in the 1940s or early 1950s, it depicts a galleon in full sail, and looks just like a pirate ship. Painted sails and a tiny painted black anchor on the front, its a charming piece. Looks great on a lapel and is the perfect finishing touch for your outfit, but it would also make a great gift for a vintage lover.

Very good, very minor surface wear and a slight paint loss to the sails - see photo. Also very minor tarnish on the pin.
