Antique large sash pin with a bee and flowers, ornate and textural. The highly detailed bee features a faceted purple glass stone, and its legs (one of which is deliberately curled against the stone) spans the pin's open center, attaching at the top; its wings touch the flowers' stems. Below the bee is an architectural arrangement of applied metalwork. The background surface of the pin has a hammered effect. When I first saw this beauty, I thought it was the work of George N. Steere, but I have decided that some other creative jewelry artist is responsible. It measures 3-3/4" x 2-1/4" and weighs a heavy 26.8g. The stone shows very slight wear on the facets but no chips, seen with a loupe.
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: Gold/Purple, Size: 3-3/4" x 2-1/4"
