Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer for your consideration....
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: This is only the second time I have had this pin and the person who purchased it told me all about it but old age has set in and I now forget. So, here's a fabulously old pin of two fishes - one up and one down - which could represent Pisces (the Zodiac sign) or it could just be a pin representative of the Christian faith (loaves and fishes that continually divided to feed a multitude of people) Well, whatever the significance, the pin is superbly crafted!
CONDITION: Excellent with no problems I can spot. The entire piece is hand made - cut AND etched! Simple c-catch at the back to hold the pinstem in place.
METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: None - as is the norm for most Victorian pieces. Metal has been acid tested for content.
SIZE: 1-5/16" high/wide
WEIGHT: 8.1 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Fabulous!
Buy with Confidence. ROBINS NEST MIDWEST is a Platinum Seller on Ruby Lane – the highest level a shop can attain.
Effective 1/29/13 - Regarding Overseas Delivery.....
New postal rates and Import Regulations are in place for the shipment of 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. Rates have gone sky high since the Jan 2013 price increase - just as an example, 2 ounces to Canada is $6.49 (my average weight for sending), 4 ounces to Italy is $9.55. OUCH!
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 shipment.
Currently, 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.
