    I found this sweet little brooch on the $3 table at a large local flea market. It stood out to me! Did this brand also do gold fill?

    Yes, I think a lot of their jewelry was gold filled. The copy on this ad states "heavy overlay of 14k gold".
    They were making jewelry from 1866 -1980s.
    Their ads were always in National Geographic, and as a kid, it was a real highlight for me when looking at that magazine!
    Here is an article about the company:

    I like!! The green of the leaves is such a pretty color and tone, and the pearls make it classic. Great find!

    I love it and it really pops on your black top.

    From memory over the past wee while I've noticed a couple on Lang's website. Quite unique and yours is lovely. I really like your look of black with pearls and your brooch! Very put together KristenTech.
