This lovely old costume pin dates from between 1900 and 1920. It is brass with an "old gold" finish. The pin is sculptured and so catches the light in an interesting manner. The large stone is a Bohemian crystal the color of topaz. The front is slightly cabochon; the back is faceted; again, catching the light. The pin measures 1 1/2" wide X 2" high. It has a period C-catch rather than a safety catch. The pin bar is quite long; the hinge is a modified tube hinge. This pin is in excellent original condition and without blemish. The stone is perfect.
