Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer for your consideration....
AGE: C.1900 or so
ITEM: A gilt brass and enamel (pale blue and white) buckle pin. Can be used as a shawl pin or skirt pin or cloak pin or cape pin - well, let's just say it can be used any number of ways! The Victorian meaning of the piece is clear - "I'm taken - buckled - to someone else" - but again, it's a pretty nice design all on its own. Simple c-clasp closure.
CONDITION: Very nice with no problems I can spot. Brass has patinated a bit, there are some specks of metal showing through the white enamel against one rim (factory mishap and nothing more).
METAL CONTENT: Gilt brass I am thinking.
HALLMARKS: Well, the back reads GENUINE CLOISONNE - that's it.
SIZE: 2-3/16" x 1-1/2" on a straight line (buckle is slightly curved).
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready to wear!
Buy with Confidence. ROBINS NEST MIDWEST has the highest rating a shop can attain on Ruby Lane.
Re USA Delivery
Effective 1/26/14 – NEW POSTAL RATES are in effect - delivery rates as well as insurance!
Re International Delivery
Ditto! As always, Import Regulations are in place for the shipment of silver/gold (fine) jewelry to other countries.
My UNDER $35 listings I will ship First Class International however I can only calculate postage when I know where the piece is going so I'll put POSTAGE TO BE DETERMINED in the International Section.
Any purchase OVER $35 must be checked against the new Import Regulations before I can send. Again, postage will be determined AFTER I check the regs. If you want to save time, please contact me BEFORE placing a purchase order so I can give you a more accurate idea as to whether or not I can send and/or how much postage will cost. Each individual country now has its own particular set of rules regarding receipt of jewelry into their country.
Shipment of jewelry to MEXICO, SINGAPORE and THAILAND is strictly PROHIBITED by the USPO. If you are from these countries please contact me before placing a purchase order.
UNITED KINGDOM – Costume Jewelry can be shipped Registered Mail; Fine Jewelry (silver or gold) still has a total restriction from sending out of the United States. If you wish to purchase something “fine” from my shop – please contact me before placing an order.
AUSTRALIA, ITALY, SPAIN, RUSSIA – Priority International Only.
CANADA – Registered Mail only.
DENMARK, MALAYSIA, NEW ZEALAND, SOUTH AFRICA – Registered Mail or Priority International.
