This is a fabulous antique hat pin from the Victorian era. It is a long pin. From tip to tip it measures 11" long. The metal backing on the porcelain shield is marked sterling on the back of the pin. The pin has a fabulous Vermont insignia at the head of the pin. Great antique collectible.
Condition: metal on the pin head needs to be polished. The pin is not perfectly straight, as is common for most Victorian era hat pins.
