COMMENTS: This vintage pin features a detailed Caravel ship, a small three masted ship developed in the 13th century. The sails of the ship are enameled in sky blue with brown shading. Above the sails are cornflower blue flags. The upper decks are also enameled in a carmel color and below the deck are marcasite accents. The hull of the ship has a decorative diamond pattern. There are beautiful sea green enameled waves splashing up onto the hull of the ship. This pin is composed of sterling silver. The expert craftsmanship of the pin is apparent. All the enamel work is 95% intact with only the slightest missing from the center flag, hardly noticeable. Two of the most popular Carvel ships were the Nina & the Pinta, which sailed with Columbus on his trip to the New World.
