Israel was not a sovereign state until 1948. It was know as Palestine and under British control until 1948.This piece, created circa 1920's, signed by him. The back of the brooch has the early "C" clasp and is stamped A. STANETZKY" and "SI 925 and a circle.
Part of the stamp in the circle has worn away but looks to be stamped twice (See Photos). The part that is worn away I believe is stamped "Little Shop" and the last few letters of Jerusalem as "LEM" but there is something else stamped underneath and I can't make out the words. I cannot stress enough that the pictures are the best description of this piece.
This is a most unusual piece and an extremely rare find! It is a must have for any collector of antique silver or historic Jewish jewelry!
It is in excellent antique condition and only shows wear on the circular stamp! This item is in the category "Jewelry & Watches\Vintage & Antique Jewelry\Brooches & Pins".
