Vintage Hobe Pendant/Brooch on Chain
This is a fascinating older Hobe piece with a portrait of a lady at it's center, surrounded by a gold tone scrolling design. It is finished with deep purple rhinestones, and signed on the back. It has a pin with safety closure, so can be worn as a brooch, or as shown, has an attachment for a chain. I am unsure if this chain was original to the pendant, and it is not signed. It was perhaps attached and left by the previous owner. Overall, it is in great vintage condition, no chips, cracks or missing stones. There may be some darkening of the metal, but this finish may have been original. The chain shows much more darkening and could be substituted with another of your own. Overall, the pendant is 2 inches in length. The chain is 15 inches.
