Vintage Figural Brooch winged Hermes Mythical Unusual Silver
The drama of these unusual mythical Gods were a popular subject in the Victorian and Nouveau jewelry periods. This vintage solid brooch has Hermes who is the messenger of the gods in Greek mythology. An Olympian god, he is also the patron of boundaries and of the travelers who cross them, of shepherds and cowherds, of thieves and road travelers, of orators and wit, of literature and poets, of athletics, of weights and measures, of invention, of general commerce, and of the cunning of thieves and liars. With such a reputation, he should surely be an asset to anyone's lives! This measures 1 3/4" long and has a C-Clasp ( see photo) . I am not sure of the silver content. And now for the tedious part that you probably already know: PLease remember that vintage & antique items are not mint, nor are they perfect but they sure are full of old history and charm.All items are sold as is and as found (used and probably vintage) Since this is Irreplaceable there can be no returns on this sale.. Please use photos to make your decisions.My definition of Vintage is a style or method formerly in vogue.
