I believe this brooch is pewter. It is Native American inspired and it has antiqued silver tone coloring. There is abalone inlay within its detailed design. It measures 2.75 inches long. It is signed "Duri" on the back. As for a date, I purchased the brooch at an estate sale so I have no personal knowledge of its age. If I had to guess, I'd say it's probably from the 1960s to 1970s.
As for what the design actually is, I've always thought it depicted an Eagle or Seahawk head (making it perfect for a Seattle Seahawks fan). But I showed it to a few friends to get their opinion and two of them agreed with me about the hawk's head, and the other two friends said it is a feather, probably from an eagle or other large bird. So, it can be either one, depending on what you want it to be.

SHIPPING COST INFO:
Every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year they went a bit overboard and are now charging based on not only weight, but also on how far a package travels. I am in Arizona and most of my packages travel eastward with the further east it goes, the more the cost. This latest increase has added an additional .46 cents to up to one dollar on packages. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of over payment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
International shipping charges will also take a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
