A delightful French stickpin from the Edwardian era, with genuine Persian turquoises and an unusual shape.
The piece has 2 hallmarks, one being a boar (French for silver) and is also marked: "800" and "Gilt Silver" at the back.
The 12 turquoises have an exquisite color and all stones are present.
The piece can easily be worn today of course, by men or women, and will be a delightful addition to any stickpins collection.
MEASUREMENTS: Length: 2 5/8" Head Width: 1/2"

CONDITION: In very good condition. The head shows the silver color at the front (I believe this is original to the piece) while the stick and the back show the gilt. Slight wear of the gilt consistent with age.
