Very old and unusual, appears handmade, oriental or Asian elephant brass pin with glass turquoise stones. It took me a minute to realize it was an elephant as it is somewhat abstract in design. Also, the clasp runs up and down rather than across and that added to the confusion. Complete with a howdah. Lots of glass turquoise stones, along with a coral stone for an eye and an opaque white stone at the bottom of the trunk. Intricate metal work.
Pin is 1 1/2 x 1 3/4 inches and is 1/4 inch thick at the top tapering to almost nothing at the base. It has an old c-clasp style mechanism. The stem is bend and wobbly, but it does fasten securely.
