Wow! How can we even describe this one? Six hammered and enameled petals make up this gorgeous orchid pin. Each petal has a light purple brushed on the inside shading into white. Pink rhinestones adorn the center of each petal and the topmost petal features glass pistils on the inside and five pink rhinestones at its base. Each petal is attached to a gold toned wire. At the base they all come together in a stem with a small leaf and one pink rhinestone.
The unusual part of this flower is that there is a gold-toned slide that when raised or lowered brings the petals closer together or farther apart. Sliding this gives the orchid a totally different look.
From end to end this pin measures 4 1/4" and is approximately 2 3/4" in width. The pin is marked Vendome Pat. Pend. and is in beautiful condition.
An unusual pin with extraordinary beauty!
