    Lily pad & flower jewelry piece

    Is this a brooch? I can't figure out the attachment - maybe it is part of something else? Found in the yard of an early 1800s house.

    Thank you!

    The "lily pad" looks like a painter's palette to me. Very clever.

    Very good! I almost took back the lily pad description before I posted but I went with my first impression and just let it fly

    Hi Pirata - it is raised about an inch but it is flexible and could be bent from its original position.

    DC Matt is right about it being a palette. Those would be paint brushes poking through the thumb hole.

    Since it has a flower and floral markings, I'm going with a lily pad brooch. Neat find Bramble Breezie
