By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea...that is what you will be singing when you wear this scallop shaped stick pin! Designed in gold tone metal, the straight pin to be inserted on your clothing is 2 and 1/2 in long. It is topped by a lovely scallop shell shape, which is 1 in wide and 3/4 in long.
The shell shape is made so that it appears as one half of a shell, such as you would find on the beach, with the interior being open. It is very realistic in representation, with the vertical striations, typical of a real shell, being very visible. On the reverse of the pin, the shell shape is attached by the top via a curve in the straight pin inserted into a small, but substantial rectangle of the metal.
Also on the inside of the back of the stick pin is a rectangle shaped cartouche which has in all caps TRIFARI, followed by the trade mark sign. The T has a tiny crown atop it. The bottom of the stick pin has a barrel shaped "keeper", which covers the tip and attaches the piece to your clothing. Stick pins were very popular in the 1970's and this example is in excellent vintage condition. Adorn yourself with this treasure from the ocean!
