This stick pin is stamped metal: I believe it copper and it did pass my polish test. It depicts a turn-of-the-century(well the previous one) young lady with her arm around her beau, cheek to cheek while he holds her. From their dress I will guess French. This scene occupies almost a square inch. Almost 3 inches down is the push-on clutch. The actual pin appears welded and it is chrome or silver material. I see no marks. This isn't fine jewelry, but just the ticket for the creative. All it needs is a hat, ribbons and your imagination. Thank you for your interest.
