"Over the banisters bends a face, Daringly sweet and beguiling..." These words, from the famous poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox written in 1917 and immortalized by Judy Garland in "Meet Me in St. Louis" in 1944, so easily spring to mind when looking at this sweet little face on a stickpin. A definite Gibson Girl, she displays her profile oh so gracefully against a window glowing pink and green. She lifts a hand, as if to straighten an already immaculate gown of golden color so shining as her hair. A beauty so sweet it could certainly be the face bending over the banister so sweetly.
