Antique Victorian pin with three owls sitting on a crescent moon, dated Dec. 12, 1882. These wise owls are charmers, rendered with a lot of character, and the date inscribed on the moon suggests a ceremonial occasion. Unmarked, this portion tests as sterling silver. The pin on the back was added later and is silver colored metal. The entire piece measures 1-3/4" east to west and the edges of the moon rise 1" north to south. At 7.6g, it's a nice weight. Wonderful Victoriana to wear.
