I found this pin in a collection that I have inherited. The only type of identification I see is a stamp that says Sterling. I am very new to this and would appreciate knowledge from you more experienced collectors.  Thanks in advance for your responses.  Teresa

Hi Theresa, Are you certain that is what is marked there? It's looked a bit like "Weiss" to me? It may be just the tarnish and dirt though. Do you have any metal polish? I like Maas Polish - it's good on all metals, or Simichrome is also very good. If you take some Windex and spray it onto Q-tips, you can also clean up your stones. They are most certainly Austrian/Czech crystal glass. NEVER use water on rhinestones - it will kill them! Some of yours that look yellowed, may already be damaged for good, it's to hard to tell until it's cleaned up.

A nice large broach like yours would sell in the $30 - $50 range if perfect. I would date it somewhere between the late 1930's - to late 1940's. Hope that helps you a bit!

I will absolutely try everything you suggested.  I have been too afraid to put anything on the pieces. 

 

Thanks for your help.
