While typical in shape, for a Nippon hat pin holder, this lovely piece is a bundle of autumnal shaded flowers. In varying shades of orange, yellow, green, and brown, the "flowers", outlined in black, sinuously wrap around the white china background. The piece is 5 inches high, while the opening at the top is 1 inch in diameter. The mark on the bottom is a typical M, wreathed in blue, with the wording Hand Painted Nippon. Just waiting for some great hat pins to be shown in their glory! This is Circa about 1921.
This hat pin holder is from Charlotte's personal collection, which was developed over three decades. She has belonged to the American Hat Pin Society for decades, to continue to learn and associate with fellow collectors. It is time for some of these treasures to move on to new houses!
