Hi

I can't seem to find much information on this brooch as for value and era. Could you please help me?

Thanks in advance,

Answer
Hello Sarah,

This is a lovely reproduction of ant Art Deco brooch. The dangling metal in the front is referred to as "mesh" The design on the pin is geometrical depicting Art Deco. It is worth $10-$15. Hope this helps,
