What Is A Pagoda

We have not had much of a chance to get to Hsinbyume Pagoda, in Mingun Burma while it's been under military rule in Myanmar/Burma. But what a gorgeous place of worship this is, isn't it.

French Art Deco Japonesque Diamond Brooch

A truly magnificent work of Art Deco jewelry art. The Land of the Rising Sun is elegantly depicted in platinum, diamonds, onyx, enamel and decorative fused glass (backed in mother of pearl!). Warmed by the diamond rays of the sun, behold Mt. Fuji, a sailboat, a pagoda and a Japanese garden. A true Art Deco masterpiece - circa 1925. 2 3/8 by 3/4 inches. French hallmarks on pinstem.
