A vintage brooch depicting a very true to life leaf made out of textured 18 karat gold. I believe the leaf to be that of a Chestnut tree. This brooch was made by McTeigue & Company, a specialty jewelry manufacturer with clients such as Tiffany & Co. and JE Caldwell. McTeigue & Co. was subsequently bought by Tiffany & Co. in 1990 (including all of their inventory, designs, and equipment).
