    Hi all. Ive been searching for this brooch for what feels like forever ! Google images sucks !!!! I have used "Brooch","costume brooch","bar brooch","pin" you name it,and Ive yet to find a match. its unmarked and heavy,but I doubt its gold or anything other than costume,but why cant I find it ??? The red dots are enamel,its 3 inches long. Any input is always appreciated,this one is truly driving me nuts !

    I think 1980s costume.
    Sort of fits with the Egyptian look.

    Maybe because there are four dots? :)

    1980s bar pin. Others were doing it better.

    Oh I knew it was costume,but I was doggedly trying to find out who. One of those deals where you are determined to identify till it drives you a little nuts. :) Thanks for the responses all .

    As it's unmarked, extremely unlikely that you'll ever be ever to discover "who." And it wasn't an expensive item in its time.

    It does look like something was there at one time ! Ive stared at it under magnification,but its too scratched out to see.

    I like it. It reminds me of artisan/costume jewellery we bought from Greece in the 1960s. They called it Ionian inspired, but that meant the general ancient Greek cultures before it all became muscular marble statues.;)
    I think they are still making similar things. If this is indeed Ancient Greek inspired, dating it could be difficult. 1980s, like the others said, will do for me.:)

    Matt gold, which I always like, makes a cheaper thing look classier. I'm seeing a Saxon or Romano British look to that.

    I know less than nothing about jewellery but I really admire the experts here and I'm learning heaps here all the time. I know this is wrong, but something just said Mary Quant or MQ inspired to me.

    I do think it will look stunning with a clean white shirt.

    And nice to see brooches making a return. :)
