Ok here is a beautiful gold tone brooch that I had seen at the thrift store for about a month -- went on half price sale and couldn't resist. Got home and found out it had a little secret about it! the middle spins and reveals two old photos underneath. The brooch is quite heavy and there isn't any kind of signatures that I have found as of yet. The one end is secured with a pin/rod and no spring. ??? year? maker? anything? I will take better photos of the clap areas later tonight-- on lunch from work and am in kinda hurry..
