This original Art Nouveau pin, dating from around 1900-1920, is of cast construction and fine finishing. The lovely design is of a beautiful woman's face in profile with flowing hair and foliage in the background. There are open areas to the hand-engraved design. The pin has a large hook mounted to the bottom of the back for the purpose of displaying a lapel watch, locket, or fob. It may be worn with or without an attachment. There is a C-catch rather than a safety catch (not invented until around 1920). The pin measures 1" in diameter and weighs .18 grams. It is in excellent original condition. It is marked 925/1000 S. The country of origin is not clear.
