Here is an antique English silver pin, complete with hallmarks. The pin is a 1 3/4" X 1 1/2" oval with a raised decoration on the border and small silver balls attached around the perimeter. The center of the pin features an etched design of a swallow, perhaps a bluebird, in flight with flowers in the foreground and a setting sun in the background. The pin is hollow with a recessed area in the back that may have originally held a keepsake. There is a tube hinge indicating a date of ca. 1900. The original C-catch has been expertly replaced with a modern safety catch. The silver has darkened attractively with age. This pin is in very good condition; there are no scratches. There are a few dents visible from the back only. This pin weighs 6.7 grams; it is light enough to be worn on a blouse or tee shirt. Scenic brooches such as this one are difficult to find, and this one charms.
