This is a lovely pin dating to the 1890s. I believe it is gold wash over brass in a square buckle shape.
It's totally charming! It has 4 pink paste stones set in a square bezel on diagonal corners. It has pretty raised metal flowing embellishments typical of the Victorian period.
This brooch has a hand forged pin stem and C clasp (not a safety clasp) and the pin point extends beyond the pin.
It is 2 inches wide and 1.75 inches tall. Some places where the metal underneath shows through, and a little bent over the years, otherwise in excellent condition.
