The photos of this glittering bar pin just do not pick up the sparkle of the etched silver finish. The lovely piece is much prettier in person.

The pin, as marked, is silver from Japan. This mark historically indicates a 950 silver content rather than 925. The feathery scrolling pattern is beautifully etched into the silver giving it sparkle when the light hits. The back of the brooch has a similar finish to the more common Niello jewelry from Japan. The long fastener pin on the reverse has a bend but still functions properly and locks within the rolling mechanism.

The rectangular bar pin measures 1 7/8" x 3/4" and is in Very Good to Excellent Condition.
