Marked on the back "sterling" and "Germany," this Art Deco pin pre-dates World War II; it is likely from the 1920's when German Deco was in style. The pin features an oval green onyx, or chrysoprase, stone. The lovely stone is translucent. It has been hand- beveled around the edge and then set into a hand-made bezel. The pin, shaped like a flattened star, has fancy, raised geometric decoration set off with marcasites. This pin is 1 3/4" long by 1 1/8" wide and weighs 8.2 grams. It is in excellent original condition.
