Here is a beautifully made little sterling silver seahorse pin perfect to wear on your lapel or shoulder. The seahorse measures only 2" tall and 3/4" wide, so he is quite petite. He has two fancy fins, a curly tail, a long snout, and scales, but manages to be quite cute and charming. The maker, Cini, was of Italian origin, and worked in New York from early in the twentieth century until around 1960. He is considered among the best of 20th century American silversmiths. This is an original, not a later piece, but the markings are not very clear. The pin has a functional safety catch and is in excellent original condition. It is probably from the 1950's.
