Offered is a large victorian era Egyptian Revival scarab hat pin. This colorful pin features a foiled peacock eye art glass cabochon as the focal point surrounded panels of enameling. This wonderful pin exhibits elements of both the art nouveau and arts & crafts periods.
This is a long pin measuring 8 1/2" long. The scarab / beetle measures 1 1/2" x 1". Hatpin is in very good vintage condition with one tiny spot of enameling missing on the right hand side about 1/3 down from the top. This is not readily noticeably but can be seen in the photos which greatly magnify it. Any other white spots in the photos is camera flash only.
There is no makers mark. The hat pin is silver tone in color. This is a highly collectible piece which can cross over into other areas of collecting such as enamel / enameled jewelry, egyptian revival, art glass / insects and of course hatpins. Sure to be the star in any collection.
