Here is an unusual baby gift: a small pin that reads "baby" in black enamel. The pin dates from around 1890. The Victorians dressed their children like miniature adults, trimming their clothing with jewelry such as rings, bracelets, lockets, and pins. This is such a pin. It is either English or American in origin. It is gold-filled with a chip-carved surface. It is embellished with the word "baby" spelled out in Gothic-design black pique enamel letters. The little pin is 1" long and 1/4" wide. It has a tube hinge and C-catch, consistent with its age. The pin is in excellent original condition.
