Brooch from 1945

My uncle brought this from Italy, where he was stationed late in WWII, for my Mom. I wonder if it can be fixed up...
I am linking this post with Rubbish Tuesday.

Wow, that is so unique. I bet it could be fixed if you knew the right place to take it.

Incredible! It makes me want to play with some of my own beads, waiting to be made into something!

Take it to Antiques Roadshow! Tom The Backroads Traveller

How interesting and different. Looks like an Indian piece of work.

Very beautiful and colorful! I agree with Tom; you should take it to Antique Roadshow or somewhere similar to have it appraised before trying to fix it up. Usually vintage finds are worth a lot more if they are *not* fixed.

I agree...Antiques Roadshow, or one of the local museum appraisal events. perhaps they can recommend a good restoration person. Good luck! It's a beautiful piece!

Antiques Roadshow would know something about this.
