Here is yet another antique item that has become hard to find. We suspect they are being kept in the family and not reaching the open market too frequently.

Made in Germany, the small turquoise cabochons are set in sterling silver along with marcasites and a single pearl (we are assuming it is cultured although it may be natural). We believe this dates from the late Victorian era - late 1800s to early 1900s.

It measures approx. 2 1/4" high x 1 1/4" wide. This pin will shine on any garment and be sure to garner many praises. The pinback is bent from use, but the rollover clasp works fine. It is also gold-washed. Hallmarked clearly "Sterling Germany" on the reverse.
