Sweet, sweet Victorian Pin in lovely antique condition.
Truly a statement of love depicting two love birds at the top of the pin, beaks together in an everlasting kiss. On either side of the love birds are 3 forget-me-not flowers.
Extended below the love birds on a small jump ring is a lovely framed black and white celluloid cameo. The cameo resides inside an ornate frame with scrollwork. Truly picture perfect!
At the back is an early riveted hinge pin back circa 1900 and C-clasp circa 1800s.
The pin is designed in a base metal with overlay.
A very sweet pin that has been taken well care of over the years. In lovely condition. No damage or repair work noted. All parts/pieces are original. Natural patina is seen at the backside and in some of the crevice work. I would not touch this piece with a cleaner. Naturally aged and so very sweet. Wonderful bloom on the metal.
A darling Valentine's Pin for yourself or a sweetheart. Sure to garner attention as it is wonderfully antique.
Thank you for looking. Questions are always welcome.
