This is a vintage Art Nouveau sterling William Kerr collar pin. It was usually placed at the neck line of a buttoned blouse or shirt. Worn instead of a jabot or tie. It is large measuring 4 3/4" long by 1 1/2" high. The pin is a group of flourishes and accented by little angel faces on either side. The pin is marked 925 and 56 plus the makers mark underneath. The silver is tarnished with a nice patina and it would benefit from a swipe of a polishing cloth. I never do this because I like the look as it is. The condition is very good with only minor wear marks on the back. The pin weighs 28.42 grams.
