Art Deco buddha lapel pin or stickpin in silver with marcasites. Rendered in translucent green glass (faux jade), this stylish buddha is framed in silver studded with tiny, sparkling marcasites; his long pin is capped with a fancy silver and marcasite closure that is meant to be seen, perfect for a shirt or jacket lapel.
The top measures 1-1/8”, the entire pin is 3-1/2”, and the bottom clutch is 7/8”. Marked Made in France, with the French boar’s head hallmark for 800-900 silver. There is one white spot of damage on the surface of the buddha about the size of a pin head, and one broken marcasite.
